I’m Ruth and I’m 18 years old. I live with my grandmother and three siblings in Keiyo North, West, Elgeyo Marakwet county. My parents separated in 2014 after my mom was imprisoned for brewing illicit liquors. After her release, she didn’t want anything to do with my father, or us, and quickly sank into drinking. We went to stay with grandma, but had to work to survive. At 10 years old, I started working on a quarry, chipping up large stones. I never had any choice. I want to pursue Journalism at university. I am determined to use my skills to make a difference in my community and country.
