Daystar at Kabaa High School Career Talk
On Saturday 9th February, the Daystar University marketing team held a career talk at Kabaa High School in Machakos County. The fair mainly targeted the Form Four candidates who would soon need to seek admission in institutions of higher learning. It was geared at creating awareness of the various programmes offered by the university as well as admission requirements.
Moreover, the fair aimed at inspiring the young minds on how to find their true passion and purpose for their life and careers, and how to handle campus life in general.
Those in attendance included Form Three and Four students from Kabaa High School as well as Kilelenzu Secondary School.
The event was facilitated by Senior Customer Care Assistant Mrs. Hellen Ogodo. Also present were Nairobi campus students Mr. Bernard Omollo and Ms. Rose-Linda Shetto and Mr. James Ouma.
The guest speaker Mr. Fred MukaShiami spoke on the five major principles in finding one’s purpose and career: self-assessment (SWOT analysis), interest, talent, job availability and personal definition of success.
“Know your strong points: your strength, weakness, interests and talent. Your profession will depend on them,” he advised, urging the students not to follow where the most money is, but to choose careers based talent and interest.
He concluded with a quote “Our greatest fear is not our inadequacy, our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that frightens us”.
Daystar student Bernard Omollo showing St. Michael Kabaa High School students the various programmes and career options available to themHellen Ogodo followed suit with a word of advice to the students before proceeding to discuss the Institution’s core values as well as the various academic programmes on offer.
“Life is but a choice; you can decide to roam the streets or go to university or college. Your vision and objectives will guide you when you are making decisions, but we are here to encourage and motivate you so that you can make the right choice,” she said.
Bernard and Rose also had an opportunity to share their campus experiences with the students, describing how campus life works and the best way to achieve growth and transformation as an individual.
