My profile

"Michael K. Mburu was born in Kenya in a sleepy village of Kiambu District by the name Banana- yes, it was formerly a banana plantation. Having shooled in the same area for both primary and secondary level, Mburu joined Kenyatta University for a degree programme in ICT which was steaming hot in that period. Mburu, while in the university, got a rare opportunity of representing the youth of Kenya to the Commonwealth Youth Programme after nomination by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports. He is a humble young man with a lot of love for life and positive attitude. Mburu's aspirations for the future is to be a youth minister or permanent/principal secretary for the youth to be in a strategic position to advocate for youth issues and change the country and indeed the world by harnessing the great potential of the fresh minds of the youth. He treats this IPYET training as a step towards that goal."

Professional background

"I dont want to feel intimidated while I am answering this section; given that I am sorrounded by learned facilitators and participants. Well, I am in my final year for an undergraduate (...........yes Im serious) degree in Computer Science. that means I do not have a professional qualification... maybe the certificate from this course will be my first in professional certification. Of course I will be a professional in International perspectives in youth entrepreneurship"


"Just a simple undergraduate degree holder......even not yet there to be strict."

My interests


"Surfing the internet. Google is my best tool when it comes to professional hobbies"


"Surfing the internet. Of course google would not do in this one.... you tube and yahoo would be a better guess"

My Sandbox

"Oh my... forgive my ignorance but I am not aware what sandbox is. Maybe I should have googled. Anyway, if I separate the two English words comprising of sandbox, I might get something different and I am a bit sure that that is not what it was meant to be"
