THE STORY:

Jemimah’s family was heavily affected by the election violence in 2008. She saw gruesome brutalities occur and missed one year of primary school during that time.  She explained, “In Eldoret, everything you had was destroyed but the only thing you they couldn’t take from you was your education.” 

Jemimah had been living in a United Nation’s Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp.  Jemimah had been promised by various foreigners that she would be given aid to better her future but many of the promises had gone unfulfilled. Fortunately, Daraja Academy was able to interview her and grant her a four year scholarship that she clearly deserved. After her admissions interview, the administrators remarked that there is indeed a miracle inside of this young woman.

Jemimah’s easygoing demeanor could almost mask the difficult past she has come from. She is a social and playful girl who fits in with ease. She is outgoing girl with a talent for acting and making people laugh.
