    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 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.

    Raised by a single mother, the family has struggled to make ends meet. They stay in single-roomed house and his mother is the sole provider. Her meagre incomes would not have been enough to take him to a quality school. He has great dreams and hopes that some day he will make them come. He entirely banks on his education and the exp[eriences in school to make this happen.
