Sharon is a girl from Kiminini, Kenya.
She grew up in a single-parent family. Her mother works as a subsistence farmer and is unable to pay the secondary schoolfees for this bright girl. Sharon ranks among the top 3% of her primary school graduation year.
Her ambition is to become a lecturer at university and to inspire her students. She would love to invent innovative teaching materials, such as electronic tablets displaying all the books within the curriculum.
Being a very motivated student herself, it hurts her to see so many school dropouts due to drug abuse. In the future she wants to provide these youngsters with guidance and counselling, so that they will return to school.
