Hadija is 17 years old and a 12th grader. She hails from Isiolo, a town in northern country which is one of the most destitute in the country. More than 80% of the population rely on food relief because droughts prevent the growth of crops. Hadija, an orphan, did not have the financial means to go to secondary school, and it seemed that she would be left without opportunities. However, she was provided a four-year scholarship to Daraja, and through her education she is working to better her life.
