HOW NCCK BECAME A STAIRCASE TO MY DESTINY
I am Mayega Enock aged seventeen years. I am from Mwamosioma Village, Kitutu Sub-County in Kisii County but presently living in Kehancha. I was born in a family of eight with both parents and five sisters.
I was born in a humble abode in which parents are self employed but could not make our ends meet, though we tried tooth and nail up to when I did my K.C.P.E. I passed well and was called to join Ramba Boys Secondary School but due to financial constraints, I joined Nyabigena High School. In form one I had almost lost my determination due to discouraging circumstances.
However in form two, second term, God opened my way and relieved my obstacles. Fortunately I was granted a scholarship in 2016 and became a beneficiary of the National Council of Churched of Kenya which has jerked me academically since form two upto now in form four.
As I vividly remember with nostalgia how I came to the merciful opportunity, that I was in our home church; Kenya Assemblies of God when my pastor called me and asked about my progress in high school. I explained to him how my situation had worsened. I further informed him how I could sometimes be sent for school fees and stay home since two of my sisters were at campus and I with other two sisters were in high school.
Then he told me about a scholarship, programmed by the churches of Kenya. Some days later I went to see him and asked me to fill some forms which entailed about the scholarship. After sometimes we were called to the office at Kisumu where we gave our personal details.
During the holiday of the second term, in term two I was called through a phone and told that I was one of the privileged beneficiaries of the scholarship. I could not believe it. I saw that my dream that was vanishing had become lively and visible again. This made me change my attitude towards life, realized my destiny and made a great difference on the following term, since then my academic life overpowered my hindrances and my learning became easy as I was not sent home for fees arrears anymore.
Having my dream enlighten once more, I am looking forward to becoming a pilot in future. Through this I could change the look of someone and return the favour I was granted by supporting the council in benefiting other beneficiaries so that they may also attain the objective in life. Through doing this if God wills, I would consider it fully completed
