THE STORY:

Everlyne travels the furthest distance to Daraja Academy: a 3 day journey.  She grew up in Northwestern Kenya just 8 miles from the Ugandan border.  Her tribe has a history of violence that they are trying to overcome.  

Everlyne is 11th of 22 children.  Her mother died giving birth to her sibling.  Her father was crippled when Everlyne was a small child.  The family attempts to grow their own food for survival, but often have to depend on charitable members of their community to make it from day to day.  Everlyne’s travel expenses for school are donated from a generous community member.  In her admissions essay she expressed how difficult it was for her to come to school but knew that it was the only way she could help her family.

Everlyne is quiet and timid with a soft high-pitched voice.  She has been working with her teachers on self-esteem issues and finding her voice.  Finding her voice isn’t a problem for her on Sundays during their student-sponsored church service.  She discusses bible verses with confidence with the other students.  However, getting her to speak in front of the classroom makes her flushed and nervous.  The Daraja Academy Administrators have seen her start to emerge from her shell.  An exciting thing to observe!
