AGE 15, GRADE 9 (2018)

Jeniffer loves being a student. “If it wasn’t for Kakenya’s Dream organization, I wouldn’t be going to school,” she says. Many of the girls near her home do not go to school. Jeniffer, however, dreams about high school and university, where she plans to study medicine and become a doctor. She hopes her future profession will lift her parents and siblings out of poverty. Despite her and her siblings' humble background, she is grateful they’ve been supported in their education and thinks they will lead better lives because of it. When she is not studying, Jeniffer plays football as a center striker and likes to score goals. She believes that sports are a good way to keep fit and relax the mind.
