THE STORY:

Carol comes from a “home without means” 
although it is lead by a wonderful and kind 
grandmother, according to this Daraja girl.  
She is a one of three children that was 
abandoned by their mother to live with 
their grandparents.  

When Carol was in the 
sixth grade, her grandfather passed away 
after being run over in a road accident.  
Carol was so traumatized from the 
experience she developed severe anxiety.  
She is a gifted student and her primary 
school teachers saw this and helped sponsor 
her at school.  Carol studied hard, and 
scored very high on her 8th grade exams.  
Because of the poverty of her family, there 
was no hope for secondary school unless she 
received a scholarship.  Luckily she heard 
rumors about Daraja Academy and applied.  

In her interview, Carol shined.  She sat 
straight and confident and looked the 
admissions team in the eye.  For a girl with 
anxiety, she overcame her inner turmoil to 
show us the best side of her.  With a little 
counseling, and our WISH program, she 
can achieve her dreams of becoming a 
doctor.
