Sr. Lydia Wanjiku Wachira graduates today with a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance option). A beneficiary of the partnership between ASEC and CUEA, she has since been recruited by ASEC as its Coordinator for Kenya.
She describes the Catholic University as a unique institution, which goes beyond offering high quality academics to inculcate virtue in students. “My two and a half years in CUEA have been exciting. I have interacted with students from different countries and in different fields of study. This has helped me grow socially. By engaging in study groups, community service activities and mentorship programs. I have achieved much in academics, sharpened my leadership skills and learnt to appreciate transboundary diversity in every sphere of life.”
Sr. Lydia says that the African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC) - CUEA partnership empowers Catholic Sisters in Africa to be effective instruments of transformation through education.
“With a unique experience of pre-university orientation and annual reflective workshops I learnt to strike balance between academics, co-curricular activities and community life.”
