About

After Brenda's family was abandoned by their father, she and her four siblings were raised by their working mother. She became pregnant at the young age of 16, and eventually gave birth to a stillborn child. She had a very difficult delivery and required surgery. She was fortunate to find a clinic in Eldoret that provided the surgery she needed to heal. During her recovery, she dreamed of returning to school to study her favorite subject, English, and become a teacher. She is now a studious member of Class 7 at St. Joan's Academy, and is on track to graduate in 2020.

    I am the third child in my family. My father is a driver and my mother is a cook. The problem that faces me at school is that I have been chased away because I did not pay my school fees. I really feel very sad when I am sent home from school and leave others in class studying. I want to study hard and help my family. I also want to help other people who can't get their basic needs, for example, food. After four years, what I want is to get Division 2 in my national exams. The thing I want to accomplish is to give hope to students like me so they don't give up in life.

    Class Rank: 1/50 My dream is to become an engineer when I grow up. I know that I have to do good in subjects like Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. In my life time I learned that difficult subjects were more rewarding when I did not give up. I learned about difficult experiences when I lost my youngest sister. It was so painful to face death when I was still a kid. I feel proud when I succeed when it is difficult now, and even more proud of myself when I received my score as the 3rd in the whole district. After these four years I want to become an engineer, to help the society in different ways and also help my fellow citizens. I also want to become a good citizen of my country.
