Diana Jones Adhiambo

When Diana was ten years old, she lost both of her parents and her younger brother and was forced to drop out of school. Moving in with her grandmother, Diana lived in poverty and without proper shelter. The next year, Diana’s aunt, a nun, took responsibility for Diana’s education and sent her to boarding school. Diana completed primary school in 2004 with very high marks. Her aunt had since been crippled by an accident, so Diana had to beg and do housework to pay for high school. In July 2010, Diana began volunteering as a teacher for orphans at the Kajiado Children’s Home, where she had a safe place to live. A friend there put her in contact with MGEF. Under MGEF’s sponsorship, Diana earned her B.S. in Hospitality & Tourism Management from Pwani University College in 2015. During her program, she spent 3 months as an intern at the Sarova Whitesands Hotel in Mombasa, Kenya. Diana has also worked part-time for Samsung.
