About Me

I'm a lady of five children Kenyan by birth, i was born by two parents whom was in poverty zone, my life was so hard even to get food was past tense to us,
I join my primary level with the age of eleven year older girl because of the circumstance, when i back from school i was to look means of getting water nearby neighbor, my family was too sober to find a way of subdue this kind but they succeed to help me and my younger brother to go secondary level, my hobby was to play with my friend netball and rope jumping.
