About

Leah is a total orphan who comes from the northern part of Kenya. She began studying at Highway Academy after she was found living with a distant relative in the nearby Bukembe Market. Though a few years behind in school, Leah has worked incredibly hard to make up for the time she lost. She particularly enjoys studying science and Kiswahili and dreams of becoming a lawyer.

I take eight subjects: English, mathematics, biology, chemistry, Kiswahili, history, CRE, and agriculture. Among those subjects, I like history, English, Kiswahili, and CRE. I want to be a lawyer. I also like reading novels and playing volleyball. I am doing well at school. Thank you for your support towards my studies.
