Newton is 19 years old and currently attends Oloolaiser High School in Nairobi. After losing his father at the age of 9, Newton has been raised by his single mother. He is the oldest of 3 children and feels the responsibility to be a father figure for his younger brother and sister.
Newton’s mother is an early childhood educator and works very hard to make ends meet.
He enjoys reading books, watching movies and travelling to new places.
He dreams of becoming a doctor, perhaps even a neurosurgeon, when he finishes school. Newton believes that studying medicine will allow him to find cures to diseases that would otherwise leave families incomplete.
‘In life I aspire to be someone great. Given a chance, I will do wonders, believe me’ – Newton.
