I was born on 26th February 1988 at Kaiboi Mission Health Center in North Nandi District. I was born the 8th child to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Rutto. My father married two wives and has sixteen children. I am the youngest of all. My father does small-scale subsistence farming while my mother is a housewife.
I started nursery school in 1993 and joined Primary School from class 1-7 at Singâ€™ore Primary school. Because I wanted to join a good secondary school, I convinced my father to take me to a boarding School. I was admitted to class eight in 2001 at A.I.C Kaptich Academy. I managed to get 401 Marks and joined Kabarnet High School in Baringo. Though it wasnâ€™t a school of my choice, I joined it because I had not received a letter of admission from any of the Schools I had chosen.
Amidst fees problems, older students harassment and strikes, I managed to get an A. Later in June 2006 I joined a religious program called Kenya Scholar Athlete program where we were trained on how to handle SAT and TOEFL while also stressing on athletics (track and field).
