Meet The First Kenyan Female Petroleum Engineer Who Mentors 1000 Students In STEM Courses

This creative and charm looking lady is called Michelle Boit. She hails from Tulwet village in Usain Gishu county. She is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and founder of Michelle Boit Foundation. She holds a first-class degree in chemical engineering from Texas technology university. For her, venturing into engineering field was one of her dreams. This is because she loved mathematics and science courses at the university with a lot of enthusiasm. In fact, those subjects were like a walk in the park for her.

Michelle, whose father was a former professor of biochemical engineering at Moi University, applied for an internship at the States after her graduation and luckily she secured it. It's the internship experience at the British Petroleum oil and gas company that motivated her to come up with a mentorship programme. Iron sharpens iron, she was mentored at the industry by 3 people and went ahead to borrow a leaf and replicate the same in her motherland Kenya. Through her foundation, she is mentoring 1,000 students with an aim to ensure that girls excel in stem subjects. The foundation also has a scholarship program that supports needy bright students. Congratulations to her. Below is a caption of her with some of the girls she is mentoring.
