Lengarawet Gladys Emmah




Date of birth: Gladys was born on the 26th June 2002
KCPE results: 320
Family: Gladys has three brothers and one sister. They live in a very traditional nomadic Manyatta near Ndonyo Wasin Primary. Neither of her parents ever went to school and they depend on their few animals for basic needs.
Schooling: Gladys says she always wanted to go to school. She was intrigued by letters and numbers since the first time she saw them. She persuaded her parents to send her to school when she was 6 years old and she has been a committed and motivated student ever since! Her father, she said, had requested to be taken to school when he was young and his parents denied him the chance. She believes this was the main reason he took her to school the moment she asked for it.
Gladys is very goal oriented and refuses to accept any position in class below the top four! She is rarely sidetracked. She is also a student that makes good choices – she is selective and prudent and has integrity and honesty; she is not afraid to speak up. Gladys is very active in church programs and is a great reader. She loves helping the younger students in the library. In fact, she spent most of her free time in library consulting with the librarian on challenging English topics. Her passion is to learn other languages, in addition to Samburu and Kiswahili. During parents meeting at school, she will be seen reciting poems and singing songs to the parents. She hopes to be a high school teacher one day and teach English.
She had marks of 320 in her KCPE exams and she was offered a place at Moi Equator Girls High School in Nanyuki, Kenya—one of the best girl’s high schools in the country.
