Kakenya Ntaiya kom överens med sin far om att hon skulle genomgå kvinnlig omskärelse, Massajernas traditionella övergångsrit, om han lät henne börja på gymnasiet. Ntaiya berättar om hur hon utan rädsla börjar på universitetet and hur hon samarbetar med de äldre i hennes by för att bygga en flickskola i hennes samhälle. Det är den lärorika resan som en person som ändrade 125 unga kvinnors öde genomgick. (Filmat vid TEDxMidAtlantic.)
