Hard work and a heart for people pays off for a young woman in our WOVEN program

Loice at her internship

 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!!!
