I was born on 21th November 1985 in Barekeiwo village, Uasin Gishu District as a seventh born of a family of 13 children and as a daughter of a farmer and housewife. At the age of six I joined Barekeiwo Primary School where I studied for eight years and finally did my Kenya Certificate of Primary school the year 2001. The results of the exam were 389 out of 500, which secured me a place in Moi Girlsâ€™ High school-Eldoret. This is where I studied for four years and finally did my Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) in 2005. Having got an A (Minus) grade in the exam, I hope to study chemical engineering at Bates College in Maine State and end up being an engineer by profession.
