Eufrasia is the eldest┬áof five children born to┬áunemployed parents in┬áKiamweri village, Meru┬áCounty. Growing up, she┬áknew the only secure┬ásource of income for her┬áfamily was the two-acre┬áplot of land on which they┬ágrew tea, and did her best┬áto help till the crop as often┬áas she could during the school holidays. But when┬áshe was in high school, a visit by an EGF mentor┬áintroduced her to ELP, and she promised to work hard┬áand gain entry into the competitive programme, even┬áthough at the time she was not the best performing┬ágirl in her school. But once she set her mind to it,┬áshe was undeterred. She earned an A on the KCSE┬á46 examination and joined ELP in 2012.
She is currently pursuing a Dental Surgery degree at the University┬áof Nairobi, where she is already demonstrating┬áleadership as the class representative of the Dental┬áSurgery class of 2017, and editor general of Scope,┬áa university publication out of the department of┬áDental Surgery.
In this role, she has led the editorial┬áteam of her magazine to organize free medical camps┬áin Kibera slum and Machakos and Starehe Girls’ High┬áSchool.
Eufrasia is also an active member of the┬áELP Honor Council, a committee of Equity Scholars┬áestablished to set high standards for professionalism,┬áintegrity and leadership among the ELP scholars. The┬áELP Honor Council is also responsible for vetting top┬áperforming scholars for Scholar Excellence Awards┬áoffered by EGF.
