“There was a time a whole district had less than 20 A’s but today one school produces 300 A’s. More than 10 times the number of As during our time!” This comment from social media left me in stitches and somehow I agree to it. Just 2 days ago, the 2015 KCSE results were released and the nation is still in shock. This has never happened before. Were the students given leakage or the exam was very easy? These are the two most common questions running in the minds of many. 

Well, a young girl by the name Warda Noor was among the top students who scored an A in last year’s KCSE. Warda Noor lives in Nyeri’s Majengo slum but despite the challenges families from slum areas face, she has come out to prove that indeed time and chance is equal to all; and so just like her counterparts from Runda, she can make it.

Here are photos of Warda Noor, flip through

Celebrated local musician Mejja was also brought up in Nyeri’s Majengo slum and he too has shown us; that it’s hard work that pays.
