Be Kids Australia scholar Idris Muktar, has been accepted into the Master Card Foundation scholarship and will be joining the University of California, Berkeley for post graduate studies. This is a full scholarship that takes care of tuition, books and accommodation while at Berkeley for the two-year program of Masters in Journalism- Multimedia and narrative writing.
Idris was scheduled to leave for California on 19th August 2020. However, due to Covid-19’s uncertainty, this has been pushed ahead and its likely he will have to take his first semester remotely in Nairobi. This is a dream come true for Idris grateful for the opportunity and the platform that he has had over the last three years since his graduation from USIU in 2017 with a full Be Kids Australia Scholarship.
