About Ruth
I’m Ruth and I’m 18 years old. I live with my grandmother and three siblings near Iten, Kenya. My parents separated in 2014 after my mom was imprisoned for brewing illicit alcohol. 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 find work to survive. At 10 years old, I started working on a quarry, chipping up large stones. I never had any choice. My dream is to pursue Journalism at university. I am determined to use my skills to make a difference in my community and country.
