Wachu holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Strathmore University. Her interest in the social sciences was ignited during her undergraduate studies, and she continues to refine it in her current role as Research Assistant. Notably, she is keen on social institutions, behavioural studies, philosophy, and the contemporary social issues. Among other things, she hopes to build research experience that will inform her postgraduate career, and that will equip her to contribute to discourse in the social sciences, particularly in the Kenyan context. In her downtime, she enjoys various artistic and musical pursuits such as choral singing, and is at the moment a beginner flutist.
