THROUGH THE LENS OF A FELLOW – Claire’s Take on The Innovation Fellowship

A Claire Kanja Review

“…the Design thinking process has in fact made me learn how to tackle real life challenges in a systematic manner…”

My experience with the Problem based learning program with the C4D Lab has been amazing.

When I first joined, I thought I was not attending the right program. However, during the introduction week, I was proven wrong and I am more than glad that I was. The classes of the program have really improved
my listening and learning skills altogether. The faculty and mentors have been truly great.
The most exciting part is the interaction among us fellows. The challenges we are working on as teams have brought us together in a way I never thought of.

Brainstorming and sharing of ideas has made me learn a lot. It is more than I ever expected. The Design thinking process has in fact made me learn how to tackle real life challenges in a systematic manner. Honestly, this is a great advantage because it is not a skill I would have acquired from the
normal campus learning.

I am grateful for how I have grown in terms of learning a bit more about myself. This is in terms of my personality, how I interact and work with others. So far so good.

The fellowship has been an eye-opening experience, since I now see problem solving in a very different perspective.I am very enthusiastic about
being a part of the rest of the program. It is such an honour for me.

Claire Kanja is a Fellow at the University of Nairobi Innovation Fellowship, 2019/2020 cohort.
