Diana Achieng Okeyo: “I can have big dreams”

Diana

Diana is an academic powerhouse! Before learning that she was admitted to WISER, Diana feared that she would not be able to afford secondary school and, like many girls in the community, would have to get married.  She has excelled across the board academically and recently earned the second highest score of all of the girls in the District during mock exams. After finishing Form 4, she hopes to spend time tutoring younger WISER girls before attending university – her fingers are crossed for admission in the US – where she plans to pursue medicine. WISER has, most importantly, enabled Diana to “…have big dreams. I have the ability to do better and I’ve realized that I’ve made it!”
