Surnley’s mother passed away and his father hasn’t been involved in his life, so he lives with his aunt in the Kawangware slums. His aunt is the sole breadwinner for the large family and doesn’t make enough money to support everyone as a house manager. They live in a single-room house made of iron sheets and timber with access to electricity but no water, which they have to buy. Surnley shares a bunk bed with his sister and cousins. They use a kerosene stove to cook their meals. Surnley has had to transfer schools multiple times because they haven’t been able to afford the school fees. He is now enrolled at Ngando Preparatory School. He loves school and dreams of becoming a doctor in the future. In his selection interview exam, he scored 383 out of 500.
