In this episode, Sheila Kibicho, Dickens Onyango, and Rae Kirage converse about Decision-Making sharing perspectives to help you take the step and decide!  Here at CSC, we are rooting for you!

Ep.11- Debunking Myths: Is Math really that hard?
I am almost certain that at one point in your life you were convinced that Mathematics was hard, that you were not built for the many formulae that characterize the subject, and that you could survive the world without it. But the question is, can you really? Is Mathematics really a nightmare as many know it to be? In this episode, Prof. Peninah Kamina, a Math Professor based in the USA, simplifies the Math concept and offers linkages between Math and the real-life world.  Hosted by Rachel Kiragu.
