I'm running with Veronica
Veronica is from Lekiji village, a place known for unemployment and alcoholism. She is the 5th of 7 children, and her mom passed away when she was young. Sadly, Veronica’s father is one of the unemployed and the family often lacked basic needs, such as food and clothes. Veronica looked to her oldest sister for help and encouragement. She worked very hard and became the first girl from her village to attend Daraja even though it’s located not far from campus. Now she is in her final year at Daraja and says she is proud to be a Daraja student. In extracurricular activities, she excels at volleyball and the high jump. After she graduates, she will go on to be a role model and changemaker in her village.
