My name is Michael, I consider myself to be a highly ambitious student. I reside in Nairobi with my mother and four siblings. I was attending a local school, St. Joseph of Tarpes, before joining the program.
Immediately I enrolled in one of the program’s focus schools, where I took my Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and achieved above-average performance. I was the top performer in my school and one of the top five performers in the NRCF program.
This achievement earned me a spot at top performing high school in Siaya County, an extra-county-level boarding boys’ high school. They have dubbed the institution “the gentlemen’s school.”
This is because of its reputation for producing moral and visionary leaders like Prof. John Lonyangapuo, the governor of West Pokot County, and the late Tom Mboya, a freedom warrior, among others. In January 2020, I began at the school. In my final year of high school, I have diligently worked to maintain a high grade point average.. I’ve been the school captain since I was in my third year. I am the president of various clubs, including mathematics, science and engineering, and modern dance.
Aiming to get an “A” on my final high school exams. I want to be the top student in the program as well as among the top students in my school. I’d want to attend the University of Nairobi and study chemical engineering, which would allow me to create and construct chemical manufacturing processes, or human pathology, which is the study of the causes and consequences of diseases or injuries on the human body.
Delighted to be a part of the program! I would like to express my gratitude to my sponsor for supporting me through this educational experience. I want to be a successful alumnus who gives back to the program so that other students may benefit from the same high-quality education I have received.
