I'm running with Marianna!
Marianna is an orphan with five siblings. She lives with her older brother, his wife, and their three children. They earn a living by selling items from a cart. Marianna loves to play football and her dream is to study to become a nurse. In her community, lack of water is a problem and the population relies mainly on food provided through relief efforts. Marianna was unable to pay for high school until her academic record and leadership ability earned her a scholarship to Daraja Academy. When she was accepted she said, “I think Daraja is where my dreams will come true!”
