What type of work are you doing at Daraja Academy?

My thesis is on student self-efficacy beliefs concerning perceived goals for the future.

[Self-efficacy is “the belief in one’s own ability to perform a task”.] I will study student career and academic goals post transition from the academy. I will determine student behavior as it is perceived by the students, not by the administration, staff, or researcher.
