Once destined to become a child bride, Kenyan educator Kakenya Ntaiya now fights to save young girls from a similar fate. Engaged at the age of five and expected to marry at puberty, she underwent the painful ritual of female genital mutilation as dictated by Maasai tradition. But Kakenya saw a better life for herself and was determined to change her destiny through education. Now an activist with a Ph.D., Kakenya has returned to her Kenyan village and established a boarding school to educate young girls and save them from becoming child brides.
