Faith Mumo, the top KCPE candidate in the country wants to be a neurosurgeon.
Speaking to TV47, Mumo, who scored 433 out of 500 marks said initially wanted to be a journalist but a mentor teacher steered her towards neurosurgery.
“I searched and learnt what a neurosurgeon does. I want to become that person,” she told TV47 in Malaa, Machakos County.
Mumo says she was asleep when the results were announced and didn’t expect to be a top candidate. She hopes of joining Kenya High school, Nairobi.
Yvette Wesonga and Angel Gakenia were tied at position two with 432 marks. Seven out of the top 10 students countrywide were girls.
