I’m Khwatenge Grevin, born on 26th may 1989, in the western part of Kenya. I am the only one in my family. I was raised by my grandparents since my dad died when I was young, and my mother when I was in form three through a road accident. They made sure to bring me up with an impartation of strict and concrete Christian values in order for me to be a respectable and virtuous man in the society.
I have been a Salvation Army church member throughout my life since it’s a family church, in which all our family members were baptised. A few years ago I studied Information Technology (IT). Unfortunately I only managed to complete the first module because I ran out of fees as I was paying for myself for part time lessons. I first heard about African Christian College (ACC) through a 2017 graduate, Nicholas Odhiambo. I was at the village last year nursing my grandfather, since I had lost my job at Nairobi in 2015, who was sick the whole of 2017 – going in and out of the hospital. I regarded this as a once in a lifetime opportunity because of the way it came – it was like God had answered my prayers of sacrificing what I had done the whole year in restoring my granddad’s health.
Now that I am at ACC for the next three years, I aim to major in leadership. Being an orphan, I would like to use the knowledge that I will acquire here to generate finances so that I can touch people’s lives somewhere – this is a covenant that I have already made with my God. I also want to be a positive difference to those who saw me before I came to this place, to show that being at ACC is not that I’m special, chosen or it was by accident, but God had a reason for giving me this opportunity.
