In 2004, 17-year-old Nungari Mwangi boarded a plane for the first time in her life with a one-way ticket from Kenya to Wales, United Kingdom, not knowing that the next time she would come back home would be six years later.
Upon completing her secondary school education at Precious Blood Riruta, Dr Mwangi received a scholarship to the United World Colleges (UWC) in Wales where she passed the International Baccalaureate diploma.
She was then awarded the Shelby Davis scholarship, through UWC, to join Brown University, an Ivy League institution in the United States, to study political science.
