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 am the fourth of five children. My father works at a local factory as a casual laborer. He is a hardworking man and I admire him a lot. However, the meager earnings he receives from the factory cannot sustain quality education for all of us. I hope that some day I will become a science teacher or lecturer and build my family a better house
