Sarah Nyanchera Nyakeri

I am a Jill of all Trades but and a master of one – Investigation. 10 Years ago, I penned a list of 20 professions I eyed. The common things were the non-routine and research aspects. Today, I am still discovering what Profession suits my abilities. 

My first day in high school, I wasn’t sure what Technical subject to go for out of the 8, however I was sure that Business Studies would be number 8. 10 years later I have been involved in business management, development and Idea Criticism more than I thought I would ever be.

My love for Design, Maths, Physics and Computer Studies and my drawing Talent made me think I would end up in an Architectural Profession but the Kenyan Government’s algorithm chose Biochemistry due to my good Biology and Chemistry grades. Now all this have been packaged into Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. 

Currently, I am Masters student in JKUAT and an ILRI MSc Fellow working on project (Identification of virulence factors as novel vaccine targets for contagious bovine pleuropneumonia by whole genome saturated mutagenesis) incorporating Molecular Biology and Bioinformatics. As an African, I believe drugs, diagnostics and vaccines that suit our infrastructure and culture are a route to better interventions in Plants, animals and People. 

In this self-discovery journey, I believe there is more to learn about the world and myself.
