Kristine Fu 2010 Scholar Mercer Island High School

I went on a mission trip to Kenya intending to help the people living in the slums of Nairobi…Amidst the poverty was a hope and light I never expected to see. The people were loving, honest, and filled with a fire to improve the lives of their family and friends. All they needed was the support of people who care about making a difference.
