About

Nelson is the last born child in a family of 10 children; two brothers and 7 sisters. His parents are peasant farmers with no means of supporting a big family and most important providing education. All his elder siblings were not able to get a good education. In 2015 Nelson sat for his KCPE exam and scored 361 marks and was the second top student at his school. Nelson wants to follow a different path from his elder siblings and make a career in his life. He believes that education is the key to success and he hopes to gain secondary education and study hard to become a mechanical engineer in the future.

Hi friends,
The third term has has been so good and now it has come to an end. I am at home now for my December holiday which lasts about two months. While at home i will help my parents farming as it is the rain onset season. I will also spare some time to do revision in my studies so as to attain my target. I am also grateful for your generous support unto my education. May Almighty bless you abundantly.
Nelson.
