She was called to join Moi Girls Highs School in Eldoret but her parents were not able to raise a fee of Ksh. 53,554 needed for her to join the school and therefore were forced to take her back to class Eight at her former primary school to repeat.

"I have been selling groceries for a very long time and educating my daughter hoping that in the future she will be able to assist me," her mother told Citizen Digital.
