Miriam Maina

I did my form four in the year 2006 and I lived in Mathare North until the post election violence. During the violence my family lost everything. We had to move to Huruma and start from scratch which was very difficult. My father used to own his own business could sustain us, now it was no longer true.

This situation did not make me loose hope because when I came to the centre I felt encouraged. At the centre I  was able to do the vocational skills. The centre also gives me  access to the Kenya Girl Guides which gave me many opportunities to reach out people from other countries. This was the beginning of my dreams coming true.
It was at the centre that my quest for becoming a computer engineer emerged when I was sponsored to do a course in BIT at Graffins College.  I am now through with my Diploma course and working.  I am saving part of my salary to enable me further my education and one day I hope to come back to the centre and assist. When I get money I would like to donate to the centre so that another girl can get an education like I did.
