Peter is from Central Kenya’s Laikipia County. He is the third child in a family of two boys and two girls. He just finished his primary schooling and is delighted to have qualified to high school. He scored a total of 358 out of 500. Despite his outstanding KCPE score, Peter is not assured a place in secondary school. His father is an alcoholic who sometimes drives Peter and the rest of the family out of the house when he returns drunk. His family cannot afford school fees, and Peter is terrified he will end up like his older brother, who did not attend secondary school despite scoring high marks in the KCPE.
Peter wants to get an education in order to assist his family in living a decent life. Science and English are his strongest subjects in school. He aspires to be a doctor to be able to take care of the sick and to be able to support his family.
