Family: Veronica comes from the area of Pareu that is 30 kilometers from Ndonyo Wasin village and which in turn is 30 kilometers from the main road. His parents are traditional nomadic pastoralists who move frequently in search of water and pasture for their animals that are their sole source of food. The Thorn Tree preschool opened in Pareu in 2004 when Veronica was 6 and her parents decided to send her there. She was the first in her family to ever go to school. Initially she didn’t want to go – she liked the independence and responsibility of herding the goats on her own. But in fact she loved it and by the end of the first week was already writing letters and showing her mother how to do it. But she says she still looks forward to looking after the goats during the school holiday.
Schooling: Veronica joined Ndonyo Wasin Primary School in 2008. She is an excellent student who has worked hard to consistently perform at the top of her class. She attributes her high score to hard work and commitment to her studies. Veronica is confident, self-possessed and thoughtful. Nothing fazes her. She is brave and never afraid to speak up for what is fair. She was head girl last year and she has been an outstanding role model and mentor to all the girls in the school. She is the best debater in the school. She was in the school choir and she was on the football team as a striker.
She sat for her final exam in grade 8 in November of last year and scored 312 marks and was offered a place at Ahero Girls that is one of the best girls schools in the country.
