About Savvy Kenya

What can I say? I’m a mother, a sister, a sometimes coder, a blogger, a lover of travel (constrained by time and money), a (dream) writer, a football fan, a (leisure) swimmer, a never-gambler, a dreamer. Yes I know this ‘about me’ description is boring but it will have to stay till I can come up with something more interesting.

From October 2014 to some time in 2018, I will be in Japan, courtesy of a research scholarship by the Japanese government. Hopefully by the end of it, I shall come out with a doctorate in computer science. Where to go from there, who knows?

    When i visit a blog, chances are that I see that the construction is poor and the writting bad. Regarding your blog,I could honestly say that you writting is decent and your website solid.

    well, if you notice I began this blog last on 31 Dec, many months after Oct. I also wasn’t interested in the elections as I was leaving JKUAT, they didn’t matter to me. Thanks for being a fan, really appreciate that.

    Everything about you is amazing. I wonder how you are able to keep up and set aside the time to keep updating your blogs. You are a natural, my inspiration. Never have I ever seen so much determination in a person and a lady for that matter as you. Am in love with ALL your work.

    I’m truly humbled by the above statement

    Did you ever read the set piece book called “African Short Stories”? there is a short story titled “Trully Married Woman”. In that story it shows how this woman was very hardworking and the husband was a punk ass drunk. One day she left and left him with nothing. But the theme of the story was how she was very very determined and worked her sweat out to improve her life and her kids without the help of her hubby. You remind me of the character in that story.
    Keep it up girl but you have inspired me to be your competition.

    You’re welcome to be my competition, it will keep me on my toes! I’ve not read that particular story but I’ll look for it. I hope to keep the determination going!

    Love you girl.

    What can I say, I love you too :)

    Hi Savvy Kenya! I was reading a month-old article about Bitcoin in Kenya and the following comments – which is how I ended up here. I am currently doing my BcS’s on this particular topic and I would like to get your perspective on this. Would you be interested in doing a 30 minute skype-session with me this weekend? All the best, Steph

    • savvykenya

      Hi Steph, kindly drop me an email using the contact page.

  • La Stica Ikaal

    I dont, know…am inspired here, i did my diploma in BIT at TUK, I would enroll in a better uni for computer sci or related degree but i have to halt coz of mullah, still the same i have bigger dreams than my booty, am so enthusiastic about being a programmer/system analyst, even though am still on foundation am so optimistic.
    I would love to have a mentor and such inspiring people to give me that pat on the back.
