We thank Nomadic Kenyan Children Education Fund for supporting Rachael in high school and OFDC for supporting her in college.
Its been a long journey for me but I must appreciate God so much and all those who gave a hand to see me through my education to this level. Before I joined high school I was a hopeless person with no idea about how my future will be like. I had lost hope of continuing with my education although I did well in my primary education. I was sure I was going to be married off. It was a dream come true when I got a scholarship through Mission With A Vision. From there there was no looking back.
With my graduation as a teacher things will change for the better .I am now in a position to help my little siblings and the needy in the society given that the girl education is not valued much in my community.
I am grateful given that this will be my stepping stone to a great future that am looking forward to. I am now teaching and at least I am in a position of raising enough money for my basic needs and that of my siblings given that they are still young and my family is very poor. I know without support I would have been married off many years ago. I am so happy that someone sacrificed his/her hard earned dollar to see me through school. I plan to make a difference in my society.
Teaching is fun and I do enjoy it given that I get to interact with many students from different back grounds and religion. It serves as an avenue for me to encourage them to take serious their studies for a better future.
I am so happy that my future is bright .Thank you so much.
