THE STORY:

Ireen is from Kibera, the largest 
slum in East Africa. Ireen’s father 
died when she was young, and her 
mother ran away from Kibera and 
has not been seen or heard from 
since. Because 8 children proved 
too many for any one relative to 
take in, Ireen’s aunt separated the 
siblings to different people in the 
community, keeping just Ireen and 
her youngest brother to raise. 
Despite abuse and turmoil 
throughout her childhood at home 
and in primary school, Ireen 
maintained her focus on her true 
passion: becoming an attorney.

“I want to be a lawyer because it is 
an occupation that I have admired 
my entire life. Our government of 
Kenya is corrupted, and I want to 
stop it by 2030. I know I can make 
the difference if I focus very hard on 
my studies.” Ireen is determined to 
show people in Kibera that girls can 
go to school and change the way 
Kenya is run. Indeed, it is her life’s 
mission.
