Age: 15

Birthday: September 15, 2004

Home: Sanyajuu

School: Henry Gogarty Girls Secondary, Form 3 (grade 10)


Diana is smart, enthusiastic and curious. When you speak to her, she smiles and giggles. Her English is fluent and she is a strong writer. She’s often the first girl to volunteer to help. Although she seems reserved in a large group, when she is talking with you she warms up and can’t stop talking, asking questions and smiling. She was among the top students at her primary school. Her ambition is to become a doctor.


Diana is one of four children. They live in a rural area where there were no government primary schools so her parents sent Diana and her two sisters to live with another family. Diana’s guardians, Mr. Shirima and Mrs. Augustina are farmers and have a small business at home. They paid for Diana’s school fees during primary school and in exchange, Diana helped with the chores at their house. Diana is excited to start boarding school and to spend vacations at The Girls Center and with her family.
