Alex was born in 2004 and is the oldest of six children in his family. Neither of his parents have a formal education, and live as traditional pastoralists, moving with their animals from one place to another in search of pasture and water. Their home is located in Ndume, about 25 kilometers away from his primary school in Ndonyo Wasin. When Alex became school age, his parents decided to send him to school so that when an inevitable drought came, he would be educated, employed and as a result would be able to look after the entire family. Alex is proud of his role as the first to attend school, and was happy to find two of his younger siblings following in his footsteps.

Alex started school in 2011 at Nesessiai Pre-School, learning under an acacia tree with the blackboard propped up against the tree trunk. Instead of a desk or a bench, the students sit on a small stone. In 2012, Alex was promoted to Ndonyo Wasin for primary school. From the very beginning, he loved school. His favorite subject is social studies. In addition to being a strong student, Alex was a member of the wildlife club and their responsibility was conserving the school environment. He is social and many students sought him out for help with challenging concepts and subjects in school. In his spare time, you can often find him in the school library reading books! He said his passion for reading has boosted his confidence and communication skills. After high school, Alex hopes to become a teacher, which would be a great fit for his natural curiosity and ability and desire to help others.
