Paul was born in 1995. He comes from a traditional nomadic pastoralist family living in a large manyatta near Lerata village and he has 6 siblings. He is the youngest . In 2001 his family were living 10 kilometers away from Lerata village and he joined Kalama pre-school. In 2002 he went to Lerata Primary School and since the family lived in Kalama at the time he had to wake up very early in the morning in order to cover the 10 kilometers to school and then he walked another 10 kilometers home in the evening.

In the drought of 2009 his family tragically lost all of their animals. His mother who is very old makes money now by burning wood to make charcoal and selling it. Paul achieved 249 marks on his KCPE exams. He is a good student who loves singing and he led the school singing group in the district music festival.
