Being brought up as an orphan and in a humble family, it was barely hard for me to walk through the education journey. After completing my O-level education from a rural school in Kajiado County, I missed out with 1 point to secure direct entry to University under the Joint Admissions Board. I felt demoralized but remained confident that an opportunity will arise in life. It was then when opportunity came knocking, and my education dreams were reignited when I was awarded full scholarship by Mount Kenya University to pursue my dream course. “Thanks to MKU fraternity, I was able to concentrate fully on my academic studies putting financial burden guardian. My experience at the University opened doors and gave me the opportunity to meet incredible people from different background and cultures”. I now hold a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce Finance option with second class honors upper division. This has remained one of the best experiences in my lifetime. I’m looking forward to securing a job. I strongly belief my successful story will serve as a good example to many other youths with passion to achieve their dreams but are endangered with financial constraints. Thank you for making my dream a reality. God bless Mount Kenya University.
