I am Edelqueen Achieng from Oora Village in Nyando Constituencey in Kisumu County. I am 21years of old.
I come from a family of four where my mother, a widow is the bread winner. I was able to receive the scholarship when I was in form two, back in 2012. With the help of the scholarship, I was able to complete my high school successfully. Currently I am doing Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology in the University of Nairobi.
Before I found the scholarship I was struggling with fee problems. This pushed me to apply for scholarship, bursaries among others to support me in paying my school fees. Luckily enough, NCCK accepted my application and my fee problems were solved. From form three henceforth, I didn’t come across fee problems.
With the help of NCCK, I managed to finish my high school successfully and passed well because I did not have fee challenges affecting my grades. I am now pursuing my dream in the university.
I want to be a great anthropologist in two years time after my graduation. In campus there are money challenges; getting upkeep becomes tricky at times I would appreciate if I get some help from the organization. A part time job that could help me has some cash for upkeep.
All thanks to NCCK for the scholarship.
