d.light, East Africa

I used to use a kerosene lamp to study, but it was not good. It was too dark and it would smoke. I would get sick from the smoke.

When my mother came home with a d.light, I was like ‘Wow.’ I used to have to go to sleep by 9 o’clock, but now I can study until 12.

With the d.light, I can get more work done. I am getting better grades.

I am in 12th grade and now a national scholar. My favorite subject is business. I want to be an accountant and go to Nairobi University.
