Angeline has been brought up by her grandmother ever since she was a little girl. Her mother was a single parent and died when Angeline was very young. For her, being admitted to KCE was the beginning of a new hope for her life. Today, Angeline is in her last year of high school, focusing on getting good grades to be accepted at the University of Nairobi. She wants to become an agricultural engineer.
It was during her time at KCE when she first learned about FGM and how it affects the life of women and girls. She believes that KCE empowered her to take control of her sexual reproductive health and rights. “I would teach girls and women to better their lives through education, because educating girls is building the whole world.” says Angeline.
