There are three boys and three girls in the family. Erick’s father left the family for another woman a long time ago, and Erick has actually never seen him. His mother works in a kiosk selling food. He was placed 12th. in his examinations at Meserani Juu Primary School in early 2014. He would like to be a doctor one day.
Erick started his secondary education at Moita Boys’ Secondary Boarding School in January 2015. He is being sponsored by Elizabeth and Karen Mitchell, who also sponsor Erick’s elder brother, Charles Roberts. Elizabeth is a former pupil at Acklam Grange School.
