Statement of Purpose
Computer technology is very dynamic and has greatly influenced the way we interact with people nowadays. Can you imagine how the world would be like if there were no computers? Most heavy industries use computer controlled robots to carry out different tasks. In addition, communication with people from other countries has been made easier thanks to emails and instant messengers. Computer programming is the field that I have always been interested in. I came to learn of programming while playing a computer game on my friend’s PC. I always wondered why a character in the game would perform a certain action when you press a key on the keyboard. My friends would see a computer game from an entertainment angle but, in my case, I was more interested in the technical part of it.

My quest to find answers for my questions led me to research on video games and how they are developed. That is how I came to know of programming and its role in computer technology. After completing my KCSE examination, I enrolled at the Digital Age Institute where I learned how to program in C and Java language. Initially, the programming course was tough and some concepts were hard to comprehend especially the data structures and algorithms, but my desire to become a computer programmer saw me work hard to understand them. By the time I was through with the course, I had developed a student management system for the Times Academy, this system made the registration and management of students easier. Consequently, I have learnt how to debug a program and make it stable at the design stage.

Early this year, I worked for the Red Cross Society (RCS) as an IT administrator. During this period I developed an application that enabled the RCS members to locate areas most affected by drought. I embedded Google Maps program on the application. In a nutshell, my application transmitted real-time data to the RCS members and after analysis, they would decide which area needed immediate response. I am very proud of my app as it has reduced the number of deaths due to hunger, moreover, I realized how important computing is to humanity. I hope to establish a software development company with the sole purpose of developing apps that bring change to humanity. In addition to this, I have developed a real-time monitoring system for the Kenya Wildlife Service. The application was to track the movement of elephants and pinpoint their exact position. Basically the app communicated with radio transmitters attached on the elephants and calculated their position. Success on this project gave me the confidence to provide software solutions to real life problems. At KWS I discovered leadership skills in myself, and frequently assisted colleagues who had little or no background in computers. As an outcome of this, KWS requested me to start a programme to train them on basic computing skills.

My experiences have made me appreciate the role of computing in empowering end users. I hope to continue empowering people on importance of computing thorough workshops and training. I possess enough experience and skills in computers, but I must build on these to achieve my goal of undertaking cutting-edge research in advanced programming. I, therefore, believe that I must return to the academic world for further growth.

I wish to earn a Masters degree in Computer science and from my research, have settled on the University of Nairobi. Your reputation for producing top class alumni and high standards of research has strengthened my desire to study at this institution. I hope that my background and qualifications are found suitable for an MS in Computer Science at the University of Nairobi.
