Through education, Shadrack hopes to “improve the living standard of my family in the future”. Shadrack greatly enjoys learning; his favorite course is science. He also loves learning about the various cultures of Africa in his social studies course,and he scored 239 marks in the KCPE exam. Like most Samburu boys, he is a skilled soccer player and was one of eleven kids on the school’s soccer team, sporting jersey #5.Shadrack has a chance at Nkubu youth polytechnic to pursue a certificate course in Mechanics,however his parents are relatively poor and could not afford to pay for his school fees.
