A STEP TO THE DRAWING BOARD
I am Effie Aluoch Otieno aged 17 years. I am from Onononam Village, Muhoroni Sub – County. I was formerly at Siaya County undertaking my secondary schooling at Lwak Girls. I am a girl brought up by a single parent following the demise of my mother who left behind two more siblings of which one, my brother also died. The walk in the path of life was tough being that he was just a farmer. We were brought up in a family strongly built in the church as monnonite believers where we get spiritual nourishment as a family daily. Through the church I got my sponsorship at form two third term after a long struggle to keep me in school through my family.
Thus my dad being the breadwinner . the frequent send out from school came to an end and I had been able to concentrate and work my best. I was able to sit my exams late this year and hoping to achieve my desire grade an A and pursue a chemical engineering course. To be a better person in future and have a stand to also help others. I am very grateful as there is no other word of appreciation but just to say thank you. I highly say thumbs up for the project for it has saved many young people who can really transform the country. I have been able to connect more to the church and stay firm in my faith. I have also managed to have better focus for my future and also dedicate myself to what I do. I am really grateful and hope to be an engineer.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where is no path and leave a trail.
