Faisa, a Kenyan Somali – and a natural orator, opened her heart and intellect on putting gender issues across to a captivated president. She, among many otheObama Girl_n.mp4_20150728_154551.277r areas, dwelt a little on education in the Northeastern regions of Kenya and the opportunities – or lack of them – for girls in those areas.
