Odede ’12 Motivated by Mother, Sisters

Kennedy Odede ’12 was featured in a recent piece in The Hartford Courant discussing his mother’s impact on all he has done in the last four years. Odede came to Wesleyan from the Kibera slum of Nairobi and has since built a school, a clean water latrine, and a health center back home. He will also give the student commencement address at Wesleyan’s 2012 Commencement ceremonies. He hopes his mother is well enough to attend.
