Amanya Lisa Adhiambo, 15, is Coast region’s top girl in the 2021 KCPE examination with 420 marks.
Lisa was a pupil at Amani Primary school in Mikindani Mombasa county.
The 15year old says she has dreams of becoming an aeronautical engineer.
However, she is worried she may not be able to fulfill her dream due to lack of school fees.
“I am happy she performed well but I don’t want to kill her dream,” Lisa’s mother Diana Akinyi said.
She says she cannot afford to pay for her school fees.
Nationally, Magata Bruce Mckenzie of GilGil hills Academy, Nakuru emerged the top student scoring 428 marks out of the possible 500.
Magata says he hopes to join Alliance High school and later in the future pursue robotics engineering.
