Dennis Kageni

My name is Dennis Kageni, a student and the Outreach Associate for Minerva Schools at KGI in Africa.  

I'm passionate about technology and how it can be leveraged to drive efficient and sustainable growth in businesses. 

I have previously worked as a Business Analytics intern for a start up and I have been part of a team that created a data analytics and visualization tool for medical practitioners in Kenya. My goal is to inspire my generation to become the change that they want to see.

The goal of my presentation is to share why I believe Minerva is a great university worth considering. I will do this by sharing my academic journey as well as explain why choosing to attend Minerva has been an opportunity for me to keep pursuing my passion and remain challenged.
