    I was raised by father after the death of my mother in 2009. She was the family' breadwinner and this proved very difficult for us. In primary school, I was supported by well-wishers and they were not able to extend the help beyong that level. I dream of being a doctor and help people in my community and Kenya at large. Hopefully, my influence will be some dsy felt across the globe.

    I live with both of my parents and they own a small piece of land which we till and the produce helps sustain the family. This is usua;lly not enough most of the time and we supplement it by my parents doing some other menial jobs as casual labourers. At times we had to interrupt our studies to help out our parents. I love playing soccer.

I love mathematics as a subject because of how challenging it and the beauty of its application in real life. Most of my siblings never had the opportunity to acquire a good secondary education, I dream of achieving more. I love playing netball and hopes some day I will become a medical doctor.

    I live with my family at a small family farm that we till and accounts for much of the family’s source of livelihood. We supplement this with other activities. We also live with our grandfather and he owns the land. I hope to finish my education and pursue a career that would be of interest to me. I love sciences and finding solutions is always my greatest goal.
