She was named a Top Ten CNN Hero in 2013, one of Newsweek's "150 Women Who Shake The World" in 2011 and a National Geographic Emerging Explorer in 2010.
________________________________________________
The girls in Kekenya's village were raised to expect female genital mutilation (FGM) followed by early marriage with no continuation of their education. Kekenya made a deal with her father. She would undergo FGM, but once she healed instead of getting married to the man she had been engaged to at age 5, she would continue her education.
________________________________________________
Kekenya then decided she wanted to go to University in the US. She negotiated with the village elders to do what no girl has ever done; leave her Maasai Village to go to college in the US, promising to use her education to benifit the community. She went onto earn her PHD in Education.
________________________________________________
"Every year I would go home, girls were getting married and I would think, 'why?' Over the years, people were talking about girls' education and FGM but it was not changing the story in my village."
________________________________________________
In 2008, she set up a boarding school for upper primary and lower secondary years, but with one major requirement. In order to attend the girls' parents had to promise that they would not force them to go through FGM or to get married, and the girls would also learn to be advocates against these harmful practices ✊🏾

Peace, Be Still Part 2:

Sound familiar? We’ve all been challenged by the deep, murky waters of life. We’ve been caught up in stormy emotions or ensnared by tempestuous circumstances that threatened to take us under.
And—in those moments—we sometimes forgot that just as Yeshua demonstrated authority over elements of the natural world—we have the ability to exercise authority over the elements (i.e. challenges, emotions and situations) in our world of affairs. We are divinely designed to transform that which is not in harmony with our true nature. That’s why we’re here. We ARE the purveyors of peace. And, the bestowers of calm.
How would your life change if you mastered the ability to assert your “peace, be still” authority? How would our communities be different if we exercised this power collectively? Daring anyone or anything to defy our decree that harmony and order prevail. How will the world be better when we awaken to the truth of who we really are?

Yeshua came to demonstrate what’s possible when we evolve in consciousness and grow into a mature awareness of our oneness with our Creator. He wasn’t here saying, “See me, I’m baad!” His message was “See me showing YOU what’s already within YOU? You’re baad too.” You don’t have to start by trying to calm the waves in Lake Minnetonka so that Apollonia can purify herself. Begin right there in your own home. The next time that something upsets you, or one of your beloveds works your last good nerve until it’s frazzled—exert dominion over the inner storm brewing and serve up some peace instead. Remember, we grow into mastery through practice. Level-up.

Peace, be still.

Peace, Be Still Part 1:

This post is a metaphysical (wisdom beyond material or literal understanding) exploration of a familiar biblical story (btw, it’s found in Matthew, Mark & Luke). After a long day spent teaching the multitudes, Yeshua and his disciples boarded a fishing boat to cross to the other side of the lake. The teacher —Yeshua—was very tired and found a spot near the stern (back) of the boat and went to sleep. While he was sleeping, a major windstorm developed (think Oya, category 5). Yet—Yeshua was undisturbed by the chaos surrounding him and continued resting.
His disciples—on the other hand—were wide awake and terrified. They decided to wake Yeshua up.
Scared and indignant, they cried out, “Teacher—don’t you care that we’re about to drown? Get up and save us!” Yeshua woke up. He rebuked the wind and commanded the sea, “Peace, be still.” Both the wind and the sea heeded in submission and calmness ensued.
Then, Yeshua turned to his disciples and asked “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?” Now—those were really good questions. He’d been teaching them that they were “… gods, children of the Most High God.” He’d been telling them that “whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things.” Yet—when the storm came, and they were afraid—they sought salvation from a power outside of themselves, because they either didn’t believe in their ability to assert dominion over the storm or didn’t know how to access it. Despite being exposed to master teachings and miraculous demonstrations, they couldn’t apply the lessons in their own lives. (Continue to part 2)
