Raised by a single parent, his father, who struggled to make ends meet, life presented numerous challenges. The dream of a quality education seemed unattainable, but Nicolas never lost hope.

During his primary education, Nicolas's father faced immense financial difficulties and was unable to afford his son's high school fees. Faced with this obstacle, Nicolas made the difficult decision to repeat a year in primary school in the hopes of finding a way to achieve his dreams.

He heard about Rush Schools, an organization dedicated to helping underprivileged children access quality education.

Fuelled by a burning desire to change his life, Nicolas embarked on an incredible journey. He walked over 30 miles to reach the Rush Schools' founders in Kakamega, Kenya.
