ABOUT EUNICE

Eunice had a dream. That dream was powerfully captured in her first poem “My Dream” that inspired thousands of people around the world!

In April 2015, Eunice, a sixth-grader at Shining Hope for Communities’ Kibera School for Girls in Kenya, was invited to perform her first poem – originally featured on A Path Appears’ social media platforms – at the Women in the World Conference in New York City. The roar of the audience and the support from many others inspired Eunice to write a new poem about her journey and hopes for the future.
