I was born on the 7th May 1987 in Mosoriot, Nandi North District. I am the second born in a family of five children. My mother is a primary School teacher while my father is a farmer. In 1992, I attended Chemnoet pre- primary school after which I went to class one in Chemnoet primary School in 1993. In 1994, I went to Mosop-Kimong Boarding Primary School until 2001 when I sat for my KCPE and attained 419 marks out of 500 marks. I was then admitted to Moi High School Kabarak in 2002 where I undertook my secondary school studies until 2005 when I sat for my KCSE exam and emerged position 14 nationwide.
In June 2006, I was invited for a try out for the Kenya-Scholar Athlete program and luckily I qualified. Since then, my life has undergone drastic changes. My greatest dream is to do well in SAT (i) and (ii) and thus join the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia U.S.A in 2007. My dream career is to be an Aeronautical Engineer. I also hope that in the near future I will help improve the lives of people in my community as well as in my country Kenya.
