Beatrice is the third born of four children. Her father, who is unemployed, has 2 wives and ten children, all of whom depend on the money he makes by burning charcoal, cultivating maize, and planting beans. After Beatrice finished primary school, her father intended to arrange for her marriage. However, Beatrice’s community raised enough money to rescue her and pay for her first year of high school. An MGEF scholarship has supported Beatrice since Grade 10. She currently attends Machakos University College and is pursuing a diploma in Business Management.
