My name is Karen Marah I was born in Nairobi Kenya and I currently live in Georgia. I go to Clark Atlanta University and study early childhood education. I currently work at Bright Horizons daycare. I’ve lived with sickle cell disease my whole life and I would like to believe it has something to do with the person I am today. I will be 22 in August 5 and I am looking forward to continuing my education in early childhood education and becoming a teacher and also a motivational speaker for myself and everyone living with sickle cell disease.
