Goldalyn Gakuya, the girl who emerged top in KCPE 2017 has officially graduated. Questions on why she was not featured in the 2021 KCSE results arose but it was later revealed that she was enrolled at Brook house international school where she has just completed her form 6 education.
Gakuya was awarded a scholarship by the Margaret Kenyatta foundation after emerging the top KCPE candidate in 2017. She was actually the first albino to ever emerge at the top of any national examination in Kenya.
Nominated senator Isaac Mwaura joined her during the graduation ceremony. Ms Gakuya now says that she wants to do medicine in an international university. Her success comes a few year after she made headlines after scoring 455 marks in the 2017 KCPE examinations.
Gakuya has thanked all those who supported her but they just don't celebrate her success but also celebrate albinism and embrace people with disabilities by helping them achieve their dreams. According to sources, Goldalyn Gakuya first joined Kenya High School before she was moved to Brookhouse School in 2019 as a beneficiary of the Margaret Kenyatta scholarship.
While at Brookhouse, she continued to record good grades until she finally graduated with straight As. In 2017, Gakuya told the media that she would like to be a psychotherapist and ab advocate of people living with albinism.
