Ebere grew up in Marsabit, a remote northern district of Kenya. His family herds camels and goats and often must travel with the animals to find water. Growing up, his school traveled with his family and was almost never in the same place.
Despite these challenges, Ebere performed exceptionally well on his secondary school entrance exam and eventually earned a place at the Nairobi School. Ebere enjoys running and soccer and is active in Christian evangelism. His best subjects are math and science. He hopes to become a medical doctor.
