Evelyne belongs to a family of five children. Her mother was not educated beyond Grade 7 and her father is illiterate. Neither parent is able to get a job, though her mother earns a meager income by selling milk. Evelyne’s elder sister was married off because the family could not afford school fees. Evelyne completed primary school but would not have been able to afford secondary school without an MGEF scholarship. Evelyne earned a degree in education from Kenyatta University in 2012, after having spent her school break in August 2012 as an intern at Prince Johns High School Kasarani in Nairobi. She is now teaches English literature at a local secondary school.
