WANJIKU SAMMY MACHARIA

 

LIGHT IN A TUNNEL

The 22 years old Sammy Macharia was born in Ngong, Nairobi County. With his family, they moved to Nakuru county, molo subcounty while he was still in his tender age. This is the story of an ambitious and smart young boy (now an adult).

As the 1st born in a family of four kids (one brother and two sisters), Sammy was ready to play the good role model for his siblings right from the very moment he developed a cognitive mind. Taking much of his learning from his single mother, an ambitious young lady with the strength of an oxen to tackle any challenge and every blow life throws at her family, humble as it were.

He was enrolled to the scholarship programme in the mid-year of 2010, while he was in form one in high school. This coming in handy to steer him forward up to a level he is right now. A final year student at Kenyatta university.

Machariah points out that the intervention (sponsorship)came at a point when he was almost giving up. Having been pushed to the edge by the situation at home. He iterates that before the intervention, the number of days he stayed at home due to school fees arrears were more than those he was actually in class. In addition to reporting a month and a half late for admission, to a school he had not intended to go, or rather had over qualified for, below the poverty line is a term you would use describe the family situation. Surviving on less than one dollar per day. Having only one meal per day- a light one, was quite the norm. his mother, the only bread winner was uneducated and unemployed and no property to inherit. So when one morning he was called upon in the principal’s office to meet a gentleman, who after introductions he said he was from NCCK, was a miracle. “ I actually thought it was a joke. An organization I have never heard about before wants to for pay my schooling for the rest of my high school; not asking for anything in return, just my continued awesome performance”.

For the following fewer weeks after the introductions at the principal’s office was the paper work. He looked for all the documents he was asked to provide with excitement and such inspiring humbleness, even as he tells his story. “I could not let any missed document cost my potential sponsorship, so I was very careful”, he says. He notes, however, that he was still doubtful of the intervention and was waiting patiently for the next term to see whether they (NCCK) will keep their end of bargain. Luckily enough, the funding came through even sooner than he expected.

There was a considerable amount of change both in his life and his family. He continues “ for someone who used to be last to clear his fee, clearing not being the consistent word , he was now the first to clear his fee” so much load had been lifted off his shoulders and even though the situation at home was not entirely favourable, he had a chance to concentrate in his studies without the worry of being sent home, indefinitely. The flading in God’s work started growing and is excited in the fact that he started being unconsciously active in the Christian union and took important role in its leadership. He was further appointed an assistant school captain in form two, later the best high school student leader in the country, the year 2013; a prestigious high school leadership award by “Amkeni WAkenya” and red Cross Kenya. He continues being an inspiration to most students and earned the respect of both the teachers and his fellow students even back at home. He became the motivation everyone needed, the kind of story everyone wished to share in. everyone spoke of him in his village. He became a blessing to many even in church as he was unfathomable. What was deemed a common believe is that, Sammy machariah was meant to do great things”, A pillar in the society”, is what they called him.

As I speak to him right now, believe me, dear leader, the kind of excitement this young man has towards life is something I would like to emulate. I look at myself in the mirror and ask myself who I am. With all the opportunities I have wasted, the time I have wasted, the poor decision I have made in my youthful days and wonder what if I did something differently, what if I avoided this and embraced that. Yet were are where we are now and what happens to us next will be determined by the choice we make, the step we take from now on.

His achievement through out his years in the university can not fit in this single sheet, one amongst others is being one of the five students in Kenya chosen to participate under full scholarship, in the young African fellowship programme (YAFF), for East and central africa. A prestigious training prigramme started by the former president of the united states, Barrack Obama, during his last visit to Kenya. He (Sammy) dreams of becoming the next generation leaders that are equipped to steer this country forward uniformly.

Despite all the challenges life throws towards him he has only one rule,” when life knocks you down, you wake up, dust off, see what made you fall and move on.
