I am thankful to God for the results I have achieved,” she told Word Is, adding that after her education, she aspires to be a pilot.

She said her mother is also happy with what she has scored. “My mother always told me that she is ready with any marks I will get,” Leyla said.

Leyla got a chance to meet the President at State House, and she managed to perform in front of him during this year’s Mashujaa Day celebrations.

With the financial difficulties her family is facing, she is hopeful that her appearance will help her finish her education and pursue her pilot dreams.

The ‘Wimbo wa Historia’ song was written by Enock Ondego in the 1970s.
