At 15 years, Collins knows where he wants his life to be. He studies at Mbita High School after emerging as one of the top students at Ngunyumu Primary School in Korogocho. Despite coming from a humble background, he has big goals. He hopes to complete his studies and become a problem solver in the community as an electronics engineer. He says he loves science and believes that with the support of Miss Koch Kenya and other well-wishers, his dream will soon be achieved.

Though the family has financial challenges, his father who works as a shoe-shiner and his mother who earns a living by washing clothes for other people work hard enough to provide them with food, clothes and shelter for him and his other four siblings.
