Rolex Achieng Otieno

High School Class of 2019

Rolex joined Achungo this year, coming from Ligisa Primary.   She was living with her parents and 3 brothers (6, 8, and 12), but her parents are too ill to work and are unable to provide for the family.  Her brothers used to attend a nearby private school, Mariwa Junior Academy, but have since had to move to the public primary school, some 3 miles away.

She enjoys volleyball, soccer and playing hide and seek and when she has free time, reading (most recently, Rudyard Kipling’s “How the Leopard Got His Spots”).  She also likes to share stories with her best friend, Sharon Odongo.

Rolex’s favorite subject is Kiswahili.  Her ambition is to study to become a nurse.

Rolex attends Kadika Girls Secondary School.
