Joy Lelei

Joy Lelei large17 years old, attending St. Andrew's Senior School, Turi. Joy was awarded a Beacon Scholarship in February 2012.

Joy obtained 7 A* and 3 A's in her iGCSE results. Although now focussing mostly on Academics, she has also been active in music and singing. As House Captain, she successfully encouraged much greater participation by her House in inter-house events, winning several. She has now applied for and been appointed a School Prefect for her final year. 

Joy is currently targeting a career in International Development, perhaps to become an activist for healthcare devolution to improve development in rural areas. She is hoping that healthcare facilities can become more accessible and available to the majority of the population in Kenya.

At Leadership Workshops Joy has become more confident with public speaking, and has been an excellent role model for younger scholars.

Joy's Summer 2016 Beacon Citizenship Project was on her 'Workers Day' initiative. View a video of her presentation:
