Migori Teachers Training College seemed to be the new chapter opened in my life as a whole person. It was not only a center of academic excellence to me, but also had fantastic incredible cultural varieties, I think it was the best place to develop different talents. Besides academic achievements, some of my fondest memories are the people I spent time with. Despite being of different religions and cultures, that did not hinder us from making friend and being there for each other at all times. I certainly made some friends for life time
