Hello, my name is Loice Makari Oloo aged 23 years old. Thank you so much for granting me this opportunity to tell you my story. I grew up as an orphan under my uncle’s guidance. I am the only child in my family. Though my uncle has a family of three children who I comfortably consider as my younger siblings, he really struggled hard as a casual worker to ensure that I successfully completed my primary education in 2016, where I scored 353 marks out of 500 marks. After my exemplary KCPE results, the school Deputy Headmaster got me a chance to join the late Mama Priscah Atieno Oulo’s Orphanage. Honestly she was my powerful guardian who really nurtured me to be a lady of integrity up to now. It was through this Orphanage that I got the opportunity to be picked by LUH for WOVEN sponsorship in 2020, having attained a mean grade of C plain with 45 points.
I am a student at Kenya Utalii College and I am pursuing a course in Hospitality Management, specializing in Food, Beverage Service and Sales. I find the course very interesting because I like interacting with different people while collaborating with them and creating a good rapport with them. I am almost done with my studies and currently on my final internship at Lake Naivasha Country Club, under Sun Africa Hotels. Immediately after this training I will be looking forward to my graduation in June this Year. Whilst at the college, I have been a well-organized student with excellent performance, usually getting credits in my academics. Moreover, I have been a very cooperative student and a team player at the college. To sum up, I would really like to thank you in a million ways for being reliable and understanding helpers. Congratulations to the WOVEN group whom I always find it easy to call my family, especially Rebecca Magire who is very strict but very caring and a good listener too. Her educative advises mean a lot to me even as I plan to exit the WOVEN program, I will continue cherishing you all. Thank you!!!
