I work one full time job. I am an admissions counselor at the Holy Cross College, but then I babysit for two families.

I am an Uber driver and I also teach English to International students.

She shared these details after she caught Ellen Degeneres’s attention while dancing on the TV show.

In the video, she begins by narrating how she landed in the USA and her motive there.

I MOVED HERE (TO THE U.S.) ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO FOR HIGHER EDUCATION AND IT’S BEEN AMAZING BUT IT’S ALSO BEEN REALLY HARD FOR MY FAMILY BACK IN KENYA BECAUSE THEY’VE HONESTLY DONE EVERY SINGLE THING FROM SELLING LAND TO TAKING LOANS TO BE ABLE TO PAY MY SCHOOL FEES AND MAKE SURE THAT I’M COMFORTABLE.

Achieng, who had never seen her family in two years because they stay in Kenya and South Africa, finally met them.
