Miss JKUAT Embarks on Cancer Awareness Campaign

The desire to live one’s childhood dreams remain elusive to many. Not so for Clara Akinyi. The 19 year-old has both her academic and professional passion unfolding before her. She not only hoped to study Supply Chain Management but she also nursed an inordinate desire to make as a professional model. So while in high school, Clara contested and was crowned Miss Kapsabet Girls High School in 2010, setting her off the runway.

To further hone her skills, Clara took modelling assignments with Knitwear models featuring in regional events like the East Africa Fashion Week. Fast-forward to 2015, and Clara has her dream course at JKUAT and she becomes the reigning Miss JKUAT 2015.

The third year student is not just looking for grand accomplishments for herself. She hopes to leverage on her new platform to impact society through a campaign to foster cancer awareness among university students as well as other Kenyans.

She is keen to sensitize colleagues on screening, early detection and management of cancer. To achieve this, Clara hopes to work with resource persons from JKUAT Hospital as well as external sponsors.

On the challenges facing students in varsities today, Clara has plenty. She believes the youngsters are struggling with peer pressure and the desire to conform. In the process a number of them have been forced into things they would ordinarily avoid.

She believes each student has strengths which can be harnessed to make a difference in various spheres of life. According to her, students need to look inside and bring out that makes them unique instead of blindly chasing wild passions whose end results could be tragic.

Clara looks forward to delve deeper into modelling and undertake a number of philanthropic activities to improve the lot of Kenyans.
