My name is Nasimiyu Sheila; I am a Form 3 Student at Highway Academy High School. I joined Highway and WEMA back in 2014 while in Class 7. My school experience has been great, attending a boarding school has been a privilege since I don’t have to worry about food, water and clothing anymore and have much more time to focus on my studies.

I am always grateful to the WEMA Community and the Highway fraternity for being the rock on which my education can thrive. I would love to grow up to be an IT Consultant and develop a computer program that impacts to the struggle children from poor background have to go through to acquire an education.

Thank so much!

Nasimiyu Sheila.
Hi Shiela,
I am so happy to help fund your education this year. A good education is a key to your future. What are your interests and favorite courses? What do you like to do in your free time?
I am a senior citizen (female) and received a graduate degree in experimental psychology. Now I am working in my husband's office. We have 1 daughter and a 12 year old grandson. I live in New York City and love to swim. I swim 4 times a week on a master's swim team and am happiest in the water!
About 12 years ago I went to Kenya on a birdwatching trip. It was amazing and spiritual.
I am a huge elephant lover and am fostering 4 orphan elephants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
All best wishes,
Barbara Charles
