Daicy’s Story

My name is Daicy Atieno Onyango. I was born into a loving family of 7 – 5 girls and 2 boys, being the second born in the family. My parents are peasant farmers. My father, cherished education and encouraged me to pursue my dreams.

From a young age, I displayed a curious mind and a thirst for knowledge that would shape my journey through life. In my early years, I attended Bala Mercy Children Centre. Upon completion, I achieved 387 marks. I then joined St. Albert’s Girls’ High School, Ulanda where I got a B+. The time had come for me to embark on a new chapter of my academic journey – university. I secured a place at Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, where currently am pursuing my passion for science and enrolled in Electrical and Communication Engineering.

University life is proving to be both exhilarating and demanding for me. I embrace the opportunity to develop deeper into my chosen field and engage in rigorous research projects alongside my professors. I work on this daily and put God first in all that I do, I am sure that I will achieve my mission in life and reach my destiny. Through my passion to serve humanity, I joined the Peace and Rotaract club at the university where we did a lot of voluntary services like visiting orphanages and children’s homes and cleaning the town. I also volunteered as a teacher at Bala Mercy Children’s Centre and Family Health Option, Kenya.
