Born and raised in Kericho, Kenya. I attended Kapropita Girls' and led my class as the school captain in breaking the academic record in 2009. I attended United World College of Adriatic in Italy and currently pursuing my degree in Economics and Environmental Science at Skidmore College, New York. As the reigning Miss Congeniality 2015 under Miss Kenya USA pageant , I advocate for the rights of the children especially the girls by working with three organizations: Speak for the Child, Charles Siele Foundation & Alice in Africa Safaris.I co-founded Speak for the Child Foundation and Charles Siele Foundation to support the children in the same community that supported me and are both based in Kericho. Also through Alice in Africa Safaris based in Elburgon, we provide free computer education and Baseball Program for the kids. My passion to give back, particularly to the children, stems from the support that my community gave to my mother; a widowed,hardworking, strong woman who has successfully raised 10 children. When I look back at my late dad's active involvement in the community, his advocacy for equal rights for the children in accessing education was so special to my community and I therefore seek to continue his legacy. Being supported in my childhood enabled me to overcome challenges. that most of the children from single-parenthood and those orphaned go through. These children have no means of supporting themselves nor advocating for themselves and are left to live desperate lives. In my daily interactions I express the importance and benefits of providing young people with the capital and opportunities necessary to succeed and reach their fullest capacities and potential.
Below are the links of the organizations.
