‘I wish to be mentored in improving my skills in Data Analysis and I am willing to come for every training in the TCC calendar so I may be mentored by your trainers.’ Four ago months, we got a message in our inbox on a request from Kevin Oduor Onyango.
As he was conducting his research, he came across our activities and noted how we would be able to support him in improving how to analyse and present data. Kevin is a former student from Technical University of Mombasa, where he studied Bachelor of Commerce (Finance Option) and simultaneous took a professional Certified Public Accountant course and reached level 5. Kevin, lives about 450 kilometers from Nairobi, where the TCC Office is located.
Kevin came from a humble background and quickly learned that he had to be ingenious in raising money for his school fees . He did this through training his fellow classmates on how to analyse as data as they worked on their research proposals. As he wants to get into a career in market research, he felt that in order to improve his chances as a researcher, he needed to be mentored so that he may improve his skills in data analysis.
“TCC-AFRICA gives me an opportunity to understand new ways of analysis, presenting and managing data,” he says.
Kevin has been assigned to Dr George Otieno Ongamo https://www.tcc-africa.org/trainer/dr-george-ongamo/
https://www.tcc-africa.org/trainer/harrison-weda/ who has published a number of papers and has an H Index of 14 and over the years of his research career he has been cited over 700 times https://scholar.google.com/citations?hl=en&user=teiHWtYAAAAJ&view_op=list_works&sortby=pubdate .
From his mentorship, Kevin hopes to apply his experience in data analysis in the forecasting of financial statements for developing business plans and market research .
