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.
