Top 100 most influential students in Kenya, 2015

They are 2015 top 100 most influential students in Kenya. Last year, we had only 87 students nominated for the top100 list but this year the number of those nominated shot to 928. The list contains innovators, developers, young entrepreneurs, activists, and student leaders that in one way or another have created a positive impact to the student life.

When compiling the top 100 list we looked at several reckonable factors for each nominated student as mentioned below. While many may not always agree with the list, we can always accept any effort to help make it better come next year.
