My Kenyan Story Part 2
I am writing this story as I celebrate our rugby sevens team for winning the main Cup at Singapore. This is historic. My story continues..It was 8th September 2014 when I joined Maseno university the only university on the Equator line as they use to brand it. During this day I met one of the university staff named Rose Achiando ( a luo). She showed me around and she took me to my room where I met
Kennedy Juma , Ken Xavi Nyamwala and Abiud Ojwang, all Luos. Throughout our stay in the same room we stayed as brothers no matter the tribe I came from. In the next room I met Vincent Odhiambo (luo) Wycky Sanchez (luo) Victor Dhe Muli(kamba). We became friends and brothers who were able to interact freely. Through these friends I was able to know so many people. In my 3rd week in campus I was appointed a class rep by Thomas Mawora Mwakudisa my IT lecturer. Through the appointment many classmates were able to know me. This is where I met Dennis Kevogo , Dennis Achimbo, Stancie Lwoba , Felix Manga, Fanuel Nyongesa, Lairus Otieno and many more other classmates. As I joined campus, the comrades were on a political semester and the aspirants were running up and down hunting for the first year votes, this is where I met Nutt Ongere my hall representative, I also met Mark who was competing with Nutt Ongere in students election. This man Alfred Makotsi who used to call himself the game changer was really a great leader whom I found in Maseno, I remember when he came to my room to campaign and I must say he’s passionate about leadership. This was my first semester although I haven’t captured every bit of it. During my second semester in campus is where I got to know so many people, after completion of high school, I had a dream of becoming a writer, a blogger and a motivational speaker among other things. On 9th June 2015 I started an association for Kericho county students named Kericho county college and university students association, KECCUSA. I started this association because I believe together we can make a difference in this great nation. The same semester I met this great motivational speaker Isaac Maweu through Facebook who always inspired me through his Facebook posts. I remember I commented on one of his posts that I am interested in becoming a great motivational speaker but I don’t know how to start it. He called me immediately and that call up to date open door for so many opportunities to me. If Isaac was tribal I don’t think that those doors could be opened to me, but I’ve realised one thing in life, negative ethnicity can kill dreams. This is where my political journey began, do you wanna know it? Part 3 is coming soon.. I wanna talk about how I became a public figure.

My name is Vincent Kipngeno but most of the people call me Scofield. I am the first born child and the only son of Flossy Kirui. Below is
# MyKenyanStory
I was born and raised up in a decimal village called Kabokyek, Kericho county. After my birth, my mother engaged in various businesses e.g selling of bananas so that she could be able to provide food for the family. I attended Kabokyek Primary school, when I was in class 2 I was joined by my great friend Oremo Nyang’au. I ask myself today that, if I was tribal I couldn’t be a friend to him, we always competed in class and he used to beat me to become number one in class as I came 2nd. In class 3 the competition was stiff he used to defeat me with just some mere marks, but before he left for a boarding school I became so tough and I defeated him. I still remember the marks I had i.e 466/500 and he had 438/500. Oremo still remains my friend up to date. We did most things together. In class 6 my mother transferred me to an academy and that’s where I completed my primary school education and I joined Kericho High school. It was interesting to join high school but it became a nightmare when I faced all sorts of monolisation, thank God for I had a cousin who was in form four, he took care of me well. At Kericho High school I met this teacher called Mr. Mogoa who used to teach Mathematics with great passion, he used to teach us the subject no matter the tribe we came from. In the year 2013 when we received the results for 2012 KCSE candidates we couldn’t believe it since the results for 197 candidates were cancelled. People called us names, some of the students transferred. I thank God I was able to withstand all this challenges because I knew that the future is promising. I completed my secondary school education well and I joined Maseno university to pursue a degree in BSc. Actuarial science… The story has just began
