When asked which student would be best suited for a Daraja Academy scholarship, all the teachers at Susan’s school said her name without a second’s thought.
Susan is a bright student with a wonderful attitude. She is from Nanyuki, a town thirty minutes from Daraja Academy.
Her parents rely on farming and manual labor to make ends meet but the family struggles tremendously. As a result, her academic future had been precarious.
Susan has shown a keen interest in environmental practices. Her favorite parts about Daraja Academy are the trees, flowers, and bushes. She spends some of her free time weeding and taking care of the plants. She is currently a member of the environmental club and shows great potential to become one of Daraja Academy’s future environmental activists!
