Today we feature Ms. Monica Kahumburu, a MEXT alumna who has since returned to Kenya. Enjoy. 🙂
Ms. Monica Kahumburu is a beneficiary of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (MEXT) scholarship during the period October 2008 –March 2012. She joined Kobe University as a research student, and in April 2010, after passing the university’s entrance examinations, she joined the Graduate School of Humanities to study Linguistics. Currently, Ms. Kahumburu teaches Japanese at Strathmore University. She is also working with The Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), as she strives towards completing her Ph.D. studies with Kobe University.
Mbithe’s ideal life would consist of an infinite loop of travelling to beautiful, idyllic locations with breathtaking views, amazing food, and nothing on her to-do list but relaxation and rejuvenation. Mbithe’s actual life involves a lot of proposals, research papers, and code, with just enough travel to make up for the rest of it.
