When Gitwa’s father died, his family kicked out Gitwa’s mother. Her mother then married a different man and that man wanted nothing to do with Gitwa and her siblings. From then on, Gitwa has lived with her grandmother who is illiterate and barely able to make any type of living.
A staff member brought Gitwa’s case to the administrators. During her admissions interview, Gitwa oozed confidence and comfort. She kept the administrators laughing the entire interview. Her vibrant personality coupled with her high scores helped Gitwa ease her way into admittance.
It is not hard to feel Gitwa’s presence on campus. She is constantly in a jovial mood, laughing and talking. She is a girl who loves the spotlight.
Gitwa aspires to be an engineer so that she can build proper buildings that do not collapse. She also plans to build a house for her grandparents. Gitwa’s winning combination of great personality and intellect definitely gives her the tools to be a force for change.
