Susan is from North Horr in Marsabit County. She benefited from the government’s free primary education policy but when time came for her to join high school and being from a poor family with a pastoral background, Susan could not afford school fees. Her mother is mentally impaired and the last time she saw her father was five years ago.
Susan was admitted to Loyangalani Mixed Secondary School where she was allowed to study under a bursary program and she later transferred to Maikona Girls High School and completed her studies under a scholarship.
She joined Fireside in January 2019 under the Women in Engineering initiative and has since been learning on the job, and is developing proficiency in fiber and fixed data tasks.
