More than 10 institutions around Arusha and beyond exhibited their programs at designated exhibition booths and Kilimanjaro Institute was well represented.

The main theme and objective of the event was to familiarizing the students with different life options that will insure that each of them makes the best and the most informed decision about their future. This year’s theme was, “Appreciating the diversity of career options and employment opportunities” and the goal was to raise students’ awareness of diversity in career options and employment opportunities.

Topic addressed during my speech: Talent versus education, how to use both to achieve excellence. It was a great day at St. Jude where I had the opportunity to inspire the students and also award certificates to the best performances during their annual career day.
