After fifteen years of silence, Mr. Enos Barasa is back ready to make amends and fully fund his daughter to a University of her choice. Maryanne, the second-best student nationally from Kenya High School says she will meet up with him to get his account of why he abandoned her and her mother 17 years ago.

Cases of single mothers struggling to raise children alone and later on seeing the fathers of their children trying to make comebacks are very rampant.

On Wednesday afternoon, the highly anticipated KCSE results were announced with Maryanne Njeri Barasa emerging number two in the country and topping the ladies.

The Kenya High School alumnus was on Jeff Koinange Live on Wednesday night and many couldn’t help but notice that she was not only intelligent and well-spoken but beautiful too.

Even the host Jeff Koinange complimented her dashing smile by saying “You have a beautiful smile and brain. Beauty and brains, good luck Maryanne.”

During the interview, Maryanne attributed her success and her high school’s success to God.

“It’s really God who enabled us to pass since we are a really religious school, we were also a united class and we helped each other a lot,” she disclosed.

Maryanne who hopes to study Medicine at Harvard University revealed that she still can’t believe that she was among the top students in the country.

“I’m still in disbelief and I’m waiting for someone to wake me up. It took a lot of discipline and work ethic (to perform so well),” she revealed.

As for medicine, Maryanne believes that it’s her calling, “It has always been a passion of mine. Somewhere deep in my heart, I knew it.”
