My name is Sandra Onindo, a Kenyan journalist and a beneficiary of Science Africa’s internship program. Fresh out of the Technical University of Kenya and looking to experience the typical pressures of a real work environment, Science Africa took me under its wing, giving me the opportunity to practice journalism in all its glory. During my three month internship (January-March 2021), I got mentorship from the best executives, attended informative seminars, interacted with renowned journalists and learned the concept of solutions journalism. Science Africa still gives me a platform to publish stories even now that I’m an independent journalist. For this, I am grateful and deeply honored.
