Graduand Spotlight: Kenyas Future Attorney General Aspirant Eva Nyambura
Graduating with a first class honours, Eva Nyambura Maina, an alumna of Kianda School and a graduand from Strathmore Law School (SLS), wishes to take up a position in the Attorney Generals office as part of her biggest law career dream.
Living this dream will only be realized through her hard work that is already evident.
The second born child in a family of three children, is currently working as a Graduate Assistant (GA) at the SLS as she awaits to join Kenya School of Law next year to further her law studies. As a GA, Eva has managed to tap into another area shes passionate about, teaching, which she loves because it involves conducting researches that will complement the knowledge she already has.
Studying law was her choice because of her aspiration towards the life she desires to live. She has enjoyed studying the course stating that she would not mind practicing her lessons in the public service; a little bit of international law and environmental law would also do her good.
She says studying at Strathmore has proven to be a good breeding ground for law students, The exposure was pretty amazing and made studying fun. The lecturers try to help in the best way they can. Being taught by international lecturers widens the scope of thinking towards the global trend, giving us an upper hand compared to students from other universities without the same exposure.
Eva attests her hardworking spree to motivation that came from the effort she saw her parents put towards paying for her school fees. She did not want to dishearten them.
While Eva could easily be picked out as an academic enthusiast, her involvement in extra-curricular activities defined another side to her university life.
She has been a member of KMUN (Kenya Models United Nations) ever since she was in first year. At her senior level, Eva joined the KMUN committee to be in charge of ICJ (International court of Justice). This is a new chapter at KMUN mostly for law students. Being an arm of the United Nations, students in KMUN participate in moots where they ponder over a lot of issues and give suggestions on matters affecting international law. Eva was also part of the Art and Heritage Club, a club that nurtured her artistic side.
Proper planning and balancing of education and social life was the key to her success, Eva advised.
After her year at KSL Eva aspires to undertake the six months pupilage option before working in a law firm. Afterwards, she intends to enroll for a Masters before attaining her dream at the AGs office.
Besides Law Eva loves reading, swimming and playing the Piano.
Congratulation Eva on your great achievement!!
