I'm running with Sharon!
Sharon is the oldest of four siblings. She never met her father, and her mother quickly became too ill to care for her. Fortunately, a pastor took them in. Now her mother stays at the church and helps there as much as she can. Sharon and her siblings stay at the nearby children’s home. During primary school, she spent many nights without food and often spent evenings selling items in the streets of Nairobi. Despite her hardships, she loves music and dancing. Her dream is to attend medical school to become a doctor. She says that she wants “to change the mindset of the people in her community.”
