Every child wishes they could do something incredible for their parents as a token of appreciation. Building a house for parents ranks top among these wishes. This is what Michelle Boit, a petroleum engineer has just done.

Michelle gifted her parents with a luxurious mansion in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County. Michelle Boit who is in her early 40s shared the good news on her social media channels.

She gifted the mansion to her parents as a token of appreciation for the way they brought her up and funded her education. She said that she was motivated after seeing how most of her friends’ parents were struggling with shelter as they lived large in foreign nations.

“I have seen many of my friends in diaspora living large but the parents are suffering and living in deplorable condition. And as a way of saying thanks to my mother, I built them a house to motivate others to do the same also,” she said. Ms. Boit was schooled in the United States.

She had been working with Tullow Oil in Kenya before she moved to a Chad-based oil company with offices in Nairobi. The handover ceremony was attended by close family members and a priest who presided over a brief spiritual sermon to bless the new house and its occupants.

Boit was born in Texas where she spent her early years of life before her parents moved back to Kenya and settled in Eldoret. As the first born in a family of three siblings – she has a brother and a sister – it was upon her to be a perfect role model to them, something she gladly strived to work on.

“Being the first born meant my siblings were looking up to me. It is a nice feeling but also challenging. In the Kenyan culture, it meant that I had to set a good example to them, support and offer some guidance if I wanted them to emerge successful,” says Boit.

Her late father was a Professor (Biochemical and Environment) at Moi University while her mother still works as an administrator at the same university.
