My name is Becks, and I am a high school student at Ole-tipis Girls High School in Kenya. I live with my mother and two siblings, and I joined Ngong Road Children’s Foundation in 2015. Through this program, I was able to attend Jagiet Academy for my primary education, and I am now in Form Two at Ole-tipis.
I love school, and my favorite subjects are English and History. I also enjoy reading novels and cooking. I have dreams of becoming a lawyer, an author, and a chef. I chose law because I want to be a beacon of hope for the oppressed. I believe that everyone deserves to have access to justice, and I want to use my skills to help those who are unable to defend themselves.
I also love to write, and I dream of becoming an author one day. I hope to share my stories with the world and inspire others. Finally, I love to cook. I find it to be a very creative and rewarding experience. I hope to one day open my own restaurant and share my passion for food with others.
Last week, I was hosted for a career development week inside the Elimu Hub library. This was a safe space for reading and writing, and I learned so much about the power of my inner voice. I enjoyed the training immensely, and I can’t wait to share what I learned with my friends at school. I am so grateful to Ngong Road Children’s Foundation and my sponsor for believing in me and giving me the gift of education. I am also grateful to my mother for walking with me through this journey of life.
I know that I have a bright future ahead of me, and I am excited to see what it holds. I am determined to achieve my dreams and make a difference in the world. If you would like to be part of my journey and help brighten a promising future, please consider sponsoring a child through Ngong Road Children’s Foundation.
