Actuaries specialize in Insurance and Pensions and are noted for their analytical talents. Risk management, data analytics, and banking and finance are among the fields where they are now in demand.
We rounded up a few Kenyan celebrities who have chosen this path, which many regard as challenging. Some were successful and kept on track, however the most of the celebrities we've highlighted here dabbled in other areas of their love yet managed to finish with a degree, with the exception of one who is currently following his course and embracing his talent.
Babu Owino is the nickname for Paul Ongili Owino. He holds the distinction for being Kenya's longest-serving student leader, a position he may keep for many years.
He enrolled at the University of Nairobi in 2008 to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Actuarial Science. He graduated in 2012 and enrolled in law school at the same university in 2013.
Kennedy Odhiambo is a JKUAT student studying Actuarial Science. Yes, this is the same person that directed the video for Khaligraph Jones' freestyle "Send Fare," in which he annihilated rapper Octopizzo in a 35-second skit. Whether it's guerilla humor about Kenyans' everyday lives or sponsored content that feels anything but, Crazy Kennar's comic attempts have always been extremely brilliant and frequently exceptionally crazy.
Polycarp's head is just as stunning as his exquisite fingers, which could serenade and win any woman's heart. Polycarp, also known as fancy fingers from Sauti Sol, earned a degree in Actuarial Science from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology.
Sarah is the perfect combination of beauty and intelligence. We're all familiar with Sarah Hassan from Tahidi High and the mayhem she caused. Newsflash: the lovely mother of one has an Actuarial Science degree from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT).
Wambui, the group's third member, has a BSc in Actuarial Science from the University of Nairobi, however she claims she has never used it in a traditional sense. Her foray into music was a "wonderful mistake," she says.
