Abigael Mwelu is the second born child in a family of seven children.

Her elder sister managed to complete high school through the support of well-wishers but she could not proceed to college and got married.

    "I come from a humble background of two parents, one sister, and one brother. We live in a single room house in Kibera. My current life situation is not so pleasing because my parents are casual workers and we live hand to mouth without enough food to eat or even good clothes to wear. Someday I would like to join the university at Nairobi and pursue a medical degree. I would like to be a doctor and treat people who cannot access medical help. I would like to help my parents by building them a big house and get them out of poverty. I would also like to help children from my slum who cannot afford school fees and their daily basic needs. My other aspiration is to be an ambassador for peace in the Kibera slums."

    "All these years my parents have been struggling paying school fees through hard work. Since it has been so difficult for my parents to manage paying my school fees and my siblings, that is why we are applying for this scholarship so that we can do well and so that none of us needs to drop out. In my life my dream has been to be a great doctor. Being a doctor is not an easy thing, someone needs to work hard so as to succeed and this is not an easy thing without school fees. I would like to help the coming generation because some will need our help as we need yours. But all in all praise will always be to God."
