Marylyn is the second born in a family of six. She lost her mother and 2 brothers to HIV/AIDS in the years 2001,2002 and 2003 respectively. Her father struggled to provide for her and her siblings. They moved to Mwongori village to live with her grandparents because her father’s health was not stable.
Marylyn is studying medicine at the University of Nairobi. Marylyn says about her medical degree course, “I chose medicine as I view it as a channel through which I can give back to society and directly touch the lives of people. I will specialize in pediatrics so as to join in the fight to reduce the infant mortality rate that is a pandemic. This will ensure the continuity of the society.”
