Written by Cecilia Cherono.

I was born in 1995 in Letoi village, Mogotio sub-county, Baringo county ( Kenya). We grew up in a humble background by my parents till 2002 when I lost my mother and my father takes care of my siblings and I up-to date.

I joined form one at Mogotio Girls High school in Baringo county and completed high school under the assistance of GTL’s scholarship in 2012 with a B+ of 71 total points out of 84 total points. .
