Charity Wanjiru Kahuria, our Software development Intern, has been with us for the past one month. She is a student at Akirachix, specializing in Android back-end development. When not coding, she enjoys reading and solving puzzles. 

As her internship comes to an end, I sought to find out a bit about her experience at Eneza Education.

Why did you choose Eneza Education for your internship?

What are some highlights about the skills have you learned? 

Charity: During my time at Eneza Education I have learned how tech companies work, the day to day of a Software Developer. I have also learned that sometimes you don’t get it the first time hence I have learned to ask and be a little patient with myself.

What is your best memory working with the team?

Charity: My best memory would be during the pitching sessions where I got to learn new things about the company, business, and the team. I also did a presentation I remember everybody being so attentive, the company culture at Eneza is really good and adaptable.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Charity: In the next five years, I see myself as a senior developer at a successful tech company or owning a startup.

What is your advice to others who are looking for an internship at tech startups?

Charity: First, know the company you want to work in, follow their social media so as to know all the updates.

second, be ready to get your hands dirty, basically, be prepared to write code you’ve never written before.

We wish Charity all the best in her education and career.
