    Baiju Shah

    Hello everyone, My name is Baiju and will be the new intern for the upcoming year of 2015-2016. I come from the beautiful country of Kenya, currently doing a Bsc. in Economics with finance. I am a huge fan of enterprises; entrepreneurship and particularly love reading on how start-ups are created and the process that they have gone through. Going out of my comfort zone excites me (because… why not!) the world is small and full of adventure. One of my greatest passions is finance (may sound geeky) and working with others in order to help bridge the gap of inequality, especially through development. I believe that teamwork and passion enables everyone to achieve their goals.
