I come from a large family of eighteen children since my father had three wives. I am the last born from my mother’s side consisting of five sisters and one brother. My siblings and I are currently living under the care of our mother as my father passed away when I was a child.
My future aspirations
After completing this course, I would like to teach my community on the importance of conserving our wildlife and encourage them to educate the girls in our community. In addition, I would like to be employed as a professional nature guide to be able to provide my basic needs as well help educate my younger siblings.

I would like to thank my sponsor Kenya Wildlife Trust for the support you have given me. Thanks for putting a broad smile on my face; I will reciprocate your heartily contribution by working extra hard throughout my course.
I would like to urge if possible to help other girls in my community to be able to pursue their career in Tour guiding at the guiding school.
May God bless you!
