Kanayia is the youngest of nine children. All four of her sisters are married, and none enrolled in school. Kanayia’s father wanted to marry her off when she was 11 years old, even though he had abandoned the family when Kanayia was in preschool. An MGEF scholarship prevented that marriage. Kanayia recently graduated from secondary school and began university in 2016, pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education and Development.
