I am Latifah. I was attending one of their focused primary schools before joining the program. I served as the head girl of my primary school, a position I held until my final year in primary school. I was a disciplined student as well as hardworking, which made me a good fit for the position. I really loved being a head girl, as I got the opportunity to exercise good leadership skills towards other students and lead by example.
After sitting for my Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE), I scored an above-average performance. This earned me a slot at a girls boarding school in Kitale. I was excited to join high school, especially because it was a new environment for me since I had not studied outside of Nairobi County. While in high school, I also held two leadership positions: dining hall captain and entertainment captain. I am really good at dancing, so it was easy for me to get the entertainment captain’s position. Apart from the leadership positions, I was also involved in a co-curricular activity. I was part of the drama club and part of the team that represented my school at different competition levels.
I sat for my Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education and performed above average. This made me the top-performing female student for the high school in in the program. I aspire to join the University of Nairobi and take a bachelor’s degree course in Law. I have always had an interest in law studies, since I was in primary school. I would also like to venture into the arts and graphic design when I am done with my course.
I would like to thank my sponsor, Chris, for sponsoring me and giving me the chance to pursue my education, and NRCF for making sure that I maximize the opportunity. I hope to succeed in my university studies, get a job, and transform my life and that of my family.
