Gloria Tergat


Gloria large17 years old, attending St. Andrew's Senior School, Turi. Gloria was awarded a Beacon Scholarship in March 2013.

Gloria achieved a good set of IGCSE results - 3A*s, 6As and 1B. She is focusing well on her hard-chosen A level subjects and is diligent, well-organised and actively engaged in class.

Gloria continues to enjoy drama, performing the role of Tanya in the school production of ‘Mamma Mia’ and completing her LAMDA Grade 8 Acting exam in May. She performed a Grade 8 Voice piece in Assembly and undertook a pre-diploma 20 minute recital at Turi in March and then at the Nairobi Conservatoire of Music in May, with great success.

Gloria was Baraza Group Leader at the 2017 Round Square Conference. She was also a Group Leader for the youth Alpha course and thoroughly enjoyed being part of a team for 6 weeks. She was made Kerio House Captain and played an integral part in house events, such as Baringo Fun Day. She was hardworking and reliable, creating an academic tutoring programme for the whole house. At school she has collected stationery for use in the Molo Street Children’s Project and took part in a Book Drive for the school library. She helped raise considerable funds towards a project for an Outreach Programme in Tuum.

At Leadership Workshops, Gloria is a good problem-solver and participator, who is clearly influential with her peers. She shows strong leadership qualities, is prepared to take risks, and is independent, mature and self-confident.

Gloria's Summer 2017 Beacon Citizenship Project continued her work from last year, as part of an Outreach Programme to Samburu, to empower girls and contribute to community development through building a kitchen at a dormitory in Seren. View a video of her presentation:
