My name is Dornel and I am 14 years old. I live with my mom and I have two hobbies: art and playing football. I was inspired to pursue these hobbies by some of my relatives. When I create art, I feel a sense of freedom and joy. It allows me to express myself in ways that words cannot capture.
In 2018, I joined the Ngong Road Children’s Foundation program which opened doors to endless possibilities in my life. After enrolling in Nelson Mandela Primary School, I was able to sit for my Kenya Certificate of Primary Examinations (KCPE) last year. Currently, I am waiting to join a good high school that aligns with my goals and ambitions, a school that sees the fire in my eyes and the dreams in my heart.
After high school, I would like to pursue a career in aeronautical engineering because of my love for airplanes. I have always been eager to learn how they operate and my ultimate dream is to build planes. I want to use my love for planes to make a difference and help people in the near future. I am grateful to the program for their support and to my sponsor for making it possible for me to get quality education that I know will open doors of opportunities for me.
