Sabdio is from North Horr, Marsabit County. She studied at Maikona Girls High School.
Being from a very needy family, Sabdio managed to convince her uncle to cater for her education needs. He would pay half of the expenses while Sabdio and her family would find a way to sort the rest out. Sabdio’s uncle had to withdraw his support in favor of his children later on and Sabdio struggled to stay in school although she managed to sit her KCSE eventually.
After completing high school, Sabdio enrolled for computer classes but eventually dropped out because of money issues.
In 2019, she joined Fireside under the Women in Engineering initiative and she is now learning on the job, acquiring skills in telecoms from our experienced engineers.
