Lenasalia Geofrey




Date of birth: Geoffrey was born in 2002
KCPE results: 332
Family: Geoffrey’s family live on the edge of Sereolipi village. He is the first born of 7 children. He lives in a traditional Manyatta with his extended family of uncles and cousins. The Manyatta is a traditional nomadic pastoralist home, easy to dismantle and carry, so during droughts families can migrate to find water and grass for their animals.
Schooling: Geoffrey is academically outstanding. He is hard working, persistent and self-disciplined. He tries to set a good example to his siblings who look up to him. He is kind and considerate of others, makes well thought out choices and is very polite to both teachers and other students. He says the key to his success is to use all the free periods at school to make sure he understands what he has just been taught. His father has always encouraged him and Geoffrey says this helps too. His liking to mathematics started when he was young. Geoffrey was the one who always ran and counted all their animals to note down how many came home each evening. He was the Maths group leader for class 8 last year and led the whole program — assigning homework and study topics, setting tests and going around the groups and helping the students.
Geoffrey achieved marks of 332 in his class 8 exams and was offered a place at Koelel Boys
High School, a top tier high school in Kenya!
