Ni kwa Neema: Kenyan Woman who scored A- in KCSE lands well paying job at Coca-cola

A kenyan student who scored A- in the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KSCE) has shared her interesting journey after landing a well- paying job at Coca-Cola.

Miriam Kaburu, who was born and raised in Nanyuki, Laikipia County, began her journey to success after showcasing exemplary results in the national examinations.

“I attended Thingithu Primary School for three years before completing my KCPE at Nanyuki Primary School, scoring 377 out of 500 marks. For secondary school, I joined Likii Hill School in Nanyuki for a year and a half, then completed my education at Loise Nanyuki Girls, graduating with an A- (80 points) and emerging as the top female student in my sub-county,” Kaburu said in an Interview.

She later secured a scholarship with one of the leading banks in Kenya that took her to a top international university, the University of Michigan, on a full-ride scholarship from the Mastercard Foundation to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Biosystems Engineering.

”I moved to the US in 2017 to undertake my education journey,” She narrated.

After completing her degree program, she moved to Canada on a full-ride scholarship to pursue a master’s in Integrated Food and Bioprocessing Engineering from McGill University.

“Even though it was challenging, I was resilient and graduated with a 3.85 GPA,” Kaburu, a mother of one, said.

After earning her master’s degree, Kaburu applied for a job at Coca-Cola, and six months after her job application, she received her lifetime opportunity.

“I applied to Coca-Cola only once, but it took me over six months to land this role post-graduation, with many rejections from different companies. What inspired me to apply to the company was its reputation for innovation and commitment to quality. I was also drawn to their global presence and the opportunity to work with a diverse team,” she said.

After landing the job, Kaburu says she has been able to apply the required skills in process control to ensure their products meet the highest standards.
