Little known Ekisegere primary school in Teso North Sub County produced the second best girl in the County in 2016 KCPE exams. Pauline Nabwire, 14, scored 411 marks to trail the top girl in the county Joy Adongo by two marks. She hopes to join Alliance Girls High School where she hopes to fulfill her dreams of becoming a Pathologist.
“I was flattered by the results. I worked smart and believed in God. I used to read up to 9pm and wake up at 5am and it paid off. During my free time, I used to play football for Ekisegere United as a striker. I am hoping to continue with my exploits when I join the school of my choice in January,” she said.
Nabwire’s parting shot to her fellow girls is that they should believe in themselves and be God-fearing, saying that success cannot come on a silver platter.
Nabwire’s mother Emily Chepkemoi, a housewife, said her first born daughter excelled due to discipline, adding that she is proud to be her mum.
Malaba Central Member of the County Assembly Ishmael Orodi congratulated the school for the good results, saying the enrollment will go up.
