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. .
In 2013 November I joined Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, Kakamega county and pursued a course in bachelor of Education Science Chemistry and Biology combination. In 2017 December, I graduated from the university with a second class honors (Upper Division).
Currently I work at Mogotio girls’ High school as a Board of Management(BOM)teacher teaching Chemistry and Biology. I am looking forward to continue with my studies and pursue a masters soon God willing though finances are a problem as I am now the bread winner of my family.
My sincere gratitude goes to GTL and Caroline Lentupuru. Thank you for your support, I am whom I am today because of you. May the Lord God bless you and your families abundantly and expand your boundaries.
I look forward to join you in supporting other girls in future.
To the girls who may be facing similar challenges as I have, persevere for life’s challenges are temporary.
Work hard! Your future life is bright!
