Gloria Mumeita Kotente

After Gloria completed her first year of secondary school, her parents were no longer able to pay school fees. She was an excellent student with a bright future ahead of her, so outstanding that letters of recommendation from the principalĀ of her primary school and the assistant chief of her region were attached to her application for an MGEF scholarship. Gloria lived up to these recommendations and graduated from Moi Girls Secondary School in November 2009, achieving an A- on the Kenyan national exam, almost unheard of for a Maasai girl from rural Kenya. Doctors at Bethesda Emergency Associates and Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland joined together to sponsor her medical school education.
