About

Lilian is the last-born child in a family of six. Her father was involved in a motorbike accident and has been unable to support the family. Most of the elder siblings dropped out of school and are unemployed. Lilian is so determined to achieve her dream of becoming a doctor. Her good performance in her exams did not come on a silver platter. She had to wake up early in the morning to go to school to utilize electricity at school. At other times, she studied under the moonlight, as there was no source of light at home. She believes that without struggle there is no progress.

Hi Lilian! I'm so glad to hear from you and so glad to hear that you have been able to go to the Kenya Connect library. I know many of the people who work there, like James, Cyrus, Patrick, Esther, and Primma. They are all wonderful people who are there to help you succeed! I hope you borrow as many books as they allow you to borrow. I love reading stories, too. I just finished reading Michelle Obama's biography. Do you know her? She is President Barack Obama's wife. I found her life story fascinating because she and her husband worked so hard. Did you know that she also wants you to succeed? She is very dedicated to supporting girls going to school throughout the world. It is very important to her and to her husband, who's father was from Kenya. I believe he was a Luo. I hope you can go back to school soon. I am sure you will be very happy to see your friends every day. I start teaching this week in Hawaii. Everyone will still be wearing masks and sitting very far apart. It is different but better than trying to learn from home. God bless you and your family. Stay strong and healthy! Keep reading and washing your hands!
