My name is Joseph Kariuki. I am from Kenya (East Africa). I am a junior majoring in Aerospace Engineering. Raised in Africa, we would climb trees to watch birds and lookout for airplanes; they stirred a fire in me that still burns till today. I am passionate about flying and robotics. In my free time you will find me with a camera taking pictures of Mother Nature, dancing, listening to music, skateboarding and reading. I am very excited to join this amazing team to empower children to become great people and to show them they can become whoever they want. I love working with kids, as I try to inspire them, I find them inspiring me with their enthusiasm and creativity. I look forward to this year being a life changing and exciting experience full of learning.
