I had the great pleasure of meeting Lilian in 2010 when she first arrived at Daraja! Immediately, her radiant smile and sweet, caring personality shined through, and we developed a great friendship. I could not ask for a more amazing young woman to support for this great cause!
Lilian is the second born in a family of four living with her single mother. Her parents divorced when she was four years old due to her father’s infidelity. The family has struggled over the years as they were dependent on only the mother’s income. Unfortunately, Lilian’s mother began to have back problems and she has been unable to work for some time. Because of an unfortunate incident involving her mother receiving a spinal injection and the poor treatment of the doctor, Lilian has a sincere desire to become a surgeon and treat her patients gently.
Lilian is an incredibly smart young woman. Among her Daraja classmates, she scored the highest on her 8th grade examination score. She is so happy to be at Daraja Academy. She always has a ready smile and is the first girl to introduce herself to any visitors to campus.
