  1. Or perhaps she is just afraid of living in the world with other humans, engaging in family and issues that challenge the human soul. Education and career are passionate dreams that end up in talk.

  2. Awesome! the outliers of Kenya are up there and it just silently spells “let the sleeping dogs lie” We have three kinds of people in Kenya. The ones who believe nothing good can come out of Kenya and are by default stagnant and stuck all their life. The ones who move beyond the belief and are doing wonders, and the ones who don’t even know where they stand talk less of pursuing a dream. People should begin training their kids not to pursue their dreams because of the money but because of the passion attached to the dream. I believe passion for her dream is what got Hazel up there.
