Ruth was born in Nyandarua County and is the first born child in the family. The family relocated to Nairobi’s Korogocho Slums when her mother died. She was five years old at the time and recalls that she and her father were desolate and the decision to relocate was made. Her father later remarried when she was in class five. Ruth’s family faces financial challenges given that her father and step-mother both don’t have a stable source of income or employment.
“My dream is to be an accountant as I want to be independent and financially disciplined to support myself and my family”, says Ruth. She is appealing for financial help in support of her education. This will also relieve some worries for her and the family. Ruth promises that all efforts to support her will not be in vain as she will put her best foot forward to focus on her schooling.
