Albinism is but a condition, young Goldalyn Kakuya has proven that it’s not a limitation to achieving big goals in life.

The disorder is characterized by a partial or complete absence of pigment in the skin, eyes or hair. The young lady emerged top in the country after scoring 455 marks out of the total 500. This made Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko praise her on his social media pages, terming the fete as “impressive”.

“Congratulations GOLDALYN KAKUYA, a pupil at ST. ANNE’S JUNIOR SCHOOL in Lubao, Kakamega for scoring an impressive 455 out of the possible 500 marks.
