KEF commemorated International Women's day on March 8th 2018 by shining a light on our female scholars and alumni who continue to break glass ceilings wherever they are. One of the ladies making us proud is 25 year old alumni, Naomi.
"I joined the kef family in 2008, when I was just 16 years old and in 10th grade at Bahati P.C.E.A Girl’s in Nakuru County. I was just a young girl with a dream. Getting a KEF scholarship was such a huge blessing for me since this was just after post elections violence. My family and I fled the place we called home and left behind every little thing we ever owned to start a new life and it has never been the same again.
KEF supported me throughout high school. I later joined Multimedia University College of Kenya, I took diploma in mass communication and graduated in 2013. Currently am working at a Law firm on weekdays as a communications person and on weekends I do videography and photography around Nairobi.
I am proud to be among the pioneers of the KEF Alumni Association which we founded in August 2014. I am currently theCountry Coordinator. I joined it so that I can give back and help a bright needy student achieve his or her dreams as I did.
I am also happy that through KEF I got to meet other wonderful scholars who are now like my siblings. It is because of KEF I got a chance to pursue the course of my choice in college and now living my dream. ASANTE KEF!!!"
