Bio

Fanice Mangoja Nyatigo is a Kenyan student at the University of California, Berkeley. She is passionate about health and medicine, and plans to use her bioengineering degree from Berkeley to contribute to the improvement of healthcare in Kenya. Outside class, Fanice is a big lover of adventure and travelling. In addition, she values mentorship and is keen on youth empowerment through mentorship, education and creation of opportunities. M-soma, one of the projects she is currently involved with, seeks to do just that by hosting a coding camp where we get computer science students from Berkeley to teach computer programing to Kenyan high school graduates. After that, the participants are enrolled on an eLearning platform where they can learn specific aspects in computer science and get inspired to become social entrepreneurs through technological innovation.
