Industrial Design student at the TU Delft participating in the minor International Entrepreneurship and Development

Hi, my name is Thirza and I am 21 years old. I am an Industrial Design student at the TU Delft participating in the minor International Entrepreneurship and Development. My study is all about solving problems in a sustainable and smart way. This minor gives me the opportunity to combine my study with helping others, something I am very passionate about. Together with 3 others I will be working on the Pokot Resource Centre project in Kenya. This project focusses on providing information and workshops in order to improve the health and life of the Kenyan Pokot community. I chose this project because the Pokot community lives in such a remote area and help is really needed. Also, I have been in Kenya before and kind of fell in love with the culture and the people. In my free time, I like being active in the outdoors and I love visiting the mountains. I am looking forward to work with the local community and see what we can achieve in a time frame of 3 months!
