About

I come from a family of six. My dad is a black smith while my mum runs a grocery kiosk. I got challenged by the situation at home and made a life commitment to stay focused on my school work. When I did my class 8 exams (K.C.P.E), I was not sure that I would make it to high school due to high fees charged at secondary school. When I got the scholarship opportunity, it gave me hope for pursuing education to became a neuro-surgeon. The program will help change my life and contribute positively to the lives of people who are hopeless in the Kibera community.
