Maseka Semo-Olesi Kithinji describes herself as a young woman with a heart for the community at the centre, a passion for flying and a mind of a lawyer. Her career is arguably one of the most prestigious but on the other hand one of the hardest to pursue as they require a lot of learning and dedication. Maseka studied a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) at Riara University from 2013 to 2017 before proceeding to Kenya School of Law to pursue a Postgraduate Diploma in Law and was later admitted as an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya.[Photos courtesy]

While still studying Law Maseka had enrolled for an aviation course at 99's Flying School at Wilson Airport when she received her Private Pilot License (PPL) in 2017. Her passion for aviation enabled her to join Donau-Universität Krems in Austria for a Master of Business Administration in Aviation, Airway Management and Operations. Maseka is labelled as the first female weight-shift microlight pilot in Kenya and her vision is to be of service to communities across Africa through women's empowerment and a voice against sexual gender-based violence. She hopes to inspire more girls to become pilots as with determination and hard work you can achieve whatever you set your eyes on.[Photo courtesy]

Currently, Maseka works as a conservation pilot at East Africa Whale Shark Trust in Likoni, Mombasa county. She has also worked as a Legal Assistant at Rachier And Amollo Advocates, a Junior Office Manager/Legal assistant at Kenya Christian Lawyers Fellowship, a Legal Researcher at Lexlink Consulting and finally a Pupillage at Dentons.[Photo courtesy]
