Due to her family’s poverty, Elizabeth was raised by her grandmother. Elizabeth helped her grandmother fetch water to pay her school fees, but often missed class because she did not have enough money to purchase the required school supplies. Despite having missed many days of school, with the help of her grandmother, Elizabeth was able to complete primary school and score very well on her Kenya Central Primary Exam. Elizabeth is extremely bright and hopes to continue her education to improve her own life and the lives of her family members.
