Veronicah Shankutit

Veronicah is the only child in her family of six children to enroll in school. She was born with a disability that required surgery and rehabilitation and still relies on crutches to walk. Veronicah has worked very hard to surmount her disability and do well in school. Veronicah’s father died when she was very young, leaving her mother to sell water and firewood in order to make ends meet. Her mother struggled to pay for secondary school and college seemed impossible until Veronicah was offered an MGEF scholarship. Veronicah earned a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education from Kenyatta University in 2016.
