The Circular Economy Hub in Mombasa, Kenya has the pleasure to work with many interns and we asked them about their experiences

Elizabeth Sammy

My name is Elizabeth Sammy and I am 22 years old. I am from Mombasa. 

I am a student at Technical University of Mombasa studying computer science. 

My internship at Close the Gap Kenya has been great. I really like the hands-on experience I got and the new skills I keep on learning every day. I like the fact that I got an opportunity to be able to work with an amazing team who are willing and ready to teach and help wherever necessary.  

The internship has been beneficial, I can now identify almost every computer related problem and be able trouble shoot a computer, repair a laptop on my own. I got an opportunity to interact with different software and I can use them well. 

One day I hope to be in a position where I'm empowering women into the Tech world. Have a team of women who are committed and are all about finding new ideas on ways of improving technology and building a tech support group and a company. I want to be able to teach and implement all the skills I've acquired and be able to bring an impact into the community.

My name is Gladys Mwaviswa. I am a 22 year-old.I am originally from Mombasa.I am a Kenyan citizen by birth. First, I enjoy my internship at CEH since I have had a lot of experiences which have made me learn a lot of new things; like installation of windows, maintenance of faulty devices etc. I also appreciate the team spirit which inspires a conducive environment when it comes to work. I am pleased with the leaders at CEH!
My expectations are to be able to learn how to identify business problems for the purpose of planning ;this will enable me to have confidence to control business operations in future.
My future dream is to become an independent woman who will be able to give the people I care about financial support. I would like to learn other languages and connect with different people all over the world !
