Aida Kariuki graduated from Catholic University of East Africa (CUEA) in 2007 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Social Service.
The girl's parents say she nurtures dreams so high despite there being no means of achieving them. They consider her completing university education a miracle.
Aida failed to secure a position in the public universities after completing her secondary school education at Loreto Convent. She nevertheless decided that she would not settle for anything less than a degree.
