Rosa Kimweli

Rosa Large

13 years old, attending Hillcrest International School, Nairobi. Rosa was awarded a Beacon Scholarship in May 2014.

Rosa is to be congratulated for her focus and work ethic in Year 8 at Pembroke House Preparatory School, which resulted in a very good set of grades at Common Entrance. She set herself tough targets to improve in specific subjects, and achieved them all. Rosa set herself clear targets in sport – to be either in the second team, or to captain the third team, in rounders, hockey and netball – and achieved these targets, captaining well when required and communicating effectively with her team. She continued to gain good grades in her curricular music, drama and art classes. Rosa was a full school prefect and took the role seriously, setting a good example around the school, and contributing to weekly prefect meetings. She also enjoyed helping the younger girls with Games, and elsewhere in the school.

In Leadership Workshops, Rosa came across as a charismatic and a natural leader. She relates well to other Scholars and is good at motivating them. She is confident speaking in public and engages the audience well.

Rosa's Summer 2016 Beacon Citizenship Project was about 'Urban Water Use'. View a video of her presentation:
