At the age of 22 Cynthia Achieng Ng’ang’a is a woman who is proud of her career path. Being bestowed with such a task of servicing the executive cars of the president is not that easy. But for her, it is the passion and result that she has attached to her work. So, as many would ask, how did she get a job? Here is how she got it

‘My father, Polycarp Ng’ang’a, has worked for DT Dobie for a long time but he encouraged me to work on my own and create an identity. He knew that you can put someone in a job  but you can’t retain one if one doesn’t understand  what the job entails.  Last year DT Dobie advertised for mechanics and I applied for a job. I bagged the job early this year and my passion has seen me rise and become entrusted with servicing the president’s official cars. Since I joined this place I have serviced 20 vehicles from State House, mainly Mercedes Benz models.’

Here is a picture of Achieng at work.
