Kakenya Ntaiya fez um acordo com seu pai: Ela se submeteria ao tradicional rito de passagem Maassai, a circuncisão feminina, se ele a deixasse frequentar o ensino médio. Ntaiya conta sua corajosa história até chegar à faculdade, e seu trabalho junto aos mais velhos de sua vila, para construir uma escola para meninas na comunidade. É a jornada educacional de alguém que mudou o destino de 125 jovens mulheres. (Filmado no TEDxMidAtlantic.)

Educator and activist
