Sharon Auma Otieno

High School Class of 2019

Sharon is 15 and came to Achungo this year.   She was living with her 21-year-old brother, a truck driver who is her only living family.  She has no memory of her parents.

She previously attended Wikoteng Primary.  “They taught in Mother Tongue [Luo] and I was failing and saw an opportunity to come to Achungo.  Here they teach in English.”

She likes playing soccer and volleyball and loves learning.

Her favorite subject now is English – “I like writing stories.  One story I wrote is about a wedding I went to.”  She hopes to study to become a lawyer – “I would be able to earn a lot of money.”

Sharon attends Kadika Girls Secondary School.
