Mercy was born in Nakuru in Rift valley. Her parents separated and were left under the care of their father. She has two siblings who are boys. Her father gave her custody to his aunt (a blood sister to her mother) and she was really being mistreated. She woke up very early to do house chores before going to school and by this time her father was ailing and couldn’t support even her two brothers. She contacted her grandparents on phone and her grandmother took them to live with them in Abom village in Bondo sub-County. After a short while the father died then a few years after her mother died and was buried in her parents’ home in Bungoma County. She likes singing, playing volleyball, rope skipping and athletics.
Mercy is attending Keyo Kodindo primary school in class seven after joining New Hope Children Orphanage.
