Rachel is from Myando, a small village known for its rice plantation. Rachel has two brothers, neither of which she has ever met. Rachel’s mother was sick and needed special treatment until her passing, so Rachel lived with her grandmother for about two years until she passed away. “After my grandmother’s funeral, my uncle, who was staying in Mombasa, took me and I lived with him for about three years until he died,” Rachel sadly recalled. “I
was so sad,” said Rachel, “So after the funeral I had no option but to stay in my late grandmother’s home.” Fate was on Rachel’s side in the form of a woman counselor who came and took Rachel to school. Now that she is at Daraja, Rachel can put the past behind her and focus on her

Today at Daraja Academy:
Rachel enjoys science and math and expresses her creativity through writing poetry, singing, and performing in the drama club. Rachel’s true passion is to become a doctor. “Many people die in Kenya because the lack of doctors,” Rachel said. “But I can become one and help those people in need.”
