Former TV and radio host Anita Nderu has landed a scholarship to study software engineering.
The mother of one took to social media recently to share about her latest move saying that it’s something she has been trying since the beginning of the year and is more than thankful it finally happened.
“So guys… I think I got myself back in school fully paid… and I’m actually scared of doing this insta story in case they see it and they realize they said yes then they are like oooh it was you? no,” she said.
“Quick back story as to this whole negative connotation that I have… I’m very positive about it and I know the year is going to get better but bear with me for the story…
“The whole first quarter of the year, the answer to literally everything I wanted to do work or school-related was no, even stuff I was volunteering for it was a no and I was like you didn’t even have to pay me.”
Nderu said that even though she has been consistently applying for scholarships, she never imagined a software engineer one will go through.
“So based on that when I applied to study software engineering I was sure it was also going to be a no but I was just trying my luck but then they said yes, and now I am here confused and like yaay, those are going to be 70 hours of studying per week,” said Nderu.
“If you have been following me for the last 5 years then you know how passionate I am about social impact projects, especially projects where women and youth empowerment are involved and digital learning and the environment as well.
“Thus why I wanted to use the influence that I have and my passion to meet my education so that I can speak from a knowledgeable standpoint.
“I wanted to go back to school on a scholarship because I am still paying student loans and I don’t want to get into any more debt. So I got I and I’m super excited and still a little confused. I’m not amused by the workload but I know I’m going to ace it.
“So guys I just wanted to share the good news with you and remind you even if you don’t know where that yes is going to come from just keep on trying, it will come, eventually. “
