Why I chose ESTEEM: I chose ESTEEM so that I can learn what it takes to build a successful tech company.

My capstone thesis project and why I’m excited about it: I will be working on a Founder's Idea as my thesis project. It involves the digitization of laws from African countries, and the ultimate goal is that people can ask simple legal questions and obtain the applicable provisions/laws. I started working on this idea as a side project even before applying to the ESTEEM program; so I am quite excited to work on it in a more formal way.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM: After the ESTEEM program, I plan to work as a software engineer or a product manager. After a couple years in that position, I want to work full-time on my own startup.

What I like to do when I’m not working in Innovation Park: One or two games of ping pong and running outside on a weekly basis are always enjoyable.
