Juliet is described as a jovial, self-motivated and caring individual who is driven by love in everything that she does. She constantly expresses genuine care for the success of others and is always happy to lend a helping hand. Juliet was a volunteer at Kenya Red Cross where she helped teach and administer First Aid. In 2015, Juliet Pioneered a project called Shedd’s Children’s Home when she noticed that some children were suffering from deficiency diseases. She started growing kale in sacks to help increase the vitamins in their diet. Shedd’s Children’s Home was recognized as the ‘Best Community Project’ by the Goethe Institute in the “You for Your Community” competition. She hopes to expand the project to a shelter which would accommodate more homeless children and remove them from the streets where they face dangers of drug- abuse and crime.
Juliet would like to address the issue of food shortage in Kenya by helping in the design and construction of dams in dry areas to harvest water that would then be used for irrigation. She is strongly confident that her acquired knowledge in Civil Engineering from UBC will help her achieve her goal of eradicating hunger and Kenya’s dependence on food aid.
