Summer @ Kenya!

4 weeks working with Vipani to support farmers in Nairobi Kenya. Yes, believe it or not this is part of my summer. Wouldn't have thought of it in my wildest dreams before coming to the business school.

Vipani is a small startup which makes it even challenging. I don't know anything more right now, but i am so excited about it. It was very easy to get this. As part of the GMIX program at the GSB, they go and source different opportunities for students, and then post them to us. I only applied to this one and i got it after a week. I was also influenced by Jeff, who is one of my classmates, had been to Africa several times before working in development projects, and is providing consultancy to this company.
