In Kenya, gender roles are bound in tradition. But Lydia’s mother wanted her and her little brother to be strong in every role. Lydia learned to hunt; her brother learned to cook and clean. Life in Kenya was hard, and her mother encouraged Lydia to go to the United States to seek a better life. Even though it was hard to leave Kenya, Lydia has no regrets. Edit credit: Alison Jacques
