Speaking to the world leaders at the summit, the 14-year old girl thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for free education in the country.

“My highlight of this summit is the commitment of my president that other girls and I, who are worried about their education, can access it with no worries.

She went on to urge world leaders to invest in sports and help girls who come from humble backgrounds.

“I would also like to thank American Fitness Professionals Association (AFPA) for empowering girls and to continue with the good work,” she concluded as DP Ruto led an elated crowd in giving her a standing ovation.
