“I live with my uncle. I don’t live with my parents because they died. My father died in 2011 and my mum died in 2006. I miss them but my uncle is nice. He has five children who I like. I have one brother. We were five in my family but three of them died, and it left just me and my brother. One of my sisters died because she had a problem of bleeding but I do not know what happened to the others”.
“I have learnt that girls are more respected than I thought. Many people respect girls and they have opportunities. If a girl gets good marks at schools, she can go to university. I want to be a journalist and I want to work in Kenya, and go to university here. I want to help make a difference here and keep working with orgnisations like Girl Power”
