"I come from a humble background of two parents, one sister, and one brother. We live in a single room house in Kibera. My current life situation is not so pleasing because my parents are casual workers and we live hand to mouth without enough food to eat or even good clothes to wear. Someday I would like to join the university at Nairobi and pursue a medical degree. I would like to be a doctor and treat people who cannot access medical help. I would like to help my parents by building them a big house and get them out of poverty. I would also like to help children from my slum who cannot afford school fees and their daily basic needs. My other aspiration is to be an ambassador for peace in the Kibera slums."
I always learn that life changes according to difficulties which we face in our life. I am living with my mother after my father died. I was living peacefully with my mother, but times became hard when I want to start my Ordinary level study. When I was in form 4 my last year, I was returned back home because I had debts at school. My mother was not able to pay. My mother decided to do hard work to pay the school fee, which made her unwell. I will never forget this time.
I was so proud and happy when my form 4 results came with good marks. After my Advanced studies, I will go to University and this will complete my dream. I wish become nutritional officer, and I will help other TSF students who need help like me.
The happiest moment of my life is to know that I am getting all my basic needs met and can study with no difficulty.
