Lawrence is 23 years old. He has a hearing impairment and is currently pursuing a Diploma in Social Work and Welfare at Kenya Institute of Social Work and Community Development. He is also employed part time by the Deaf Ability Initiative in Kenya, which enables Deaf young people to realise their full potential.
He has represented young people with disabilities at major conferences and forums both locally and nationally, and is an active campaigner for the rights of young people with disabilities through Leonard Cheshire Disability Young Voices. He is particularly proud of his contributions towards the promotion of sign language while studying at the Kenya Institute of Social Work and Community Development. When he started his course, none of his fellow students or tutors understood Kenyan sign language. He wrote to the Director of the Institution urging him to introduce a basic sign language course. As a result of his advocacy, a sign language course has been established, and more Deaf people are now being admitted to the Institution to pursue their studies.
