Born in Kiambu County twenty-three years ago, Lucy Kariuki is a person living with albinism. In spite of her disability she is aggressive, has high self-esteem, motivated to face the society with its challenges. She is a graduate of Business Management finance option from the Masinde Muliro University. She has developed different skills through internship and she has been privileged to work with Kenya Bureau of Standards, Barclays bank of Kenya, Association of Physically disabled people of Kenya and Albinism Society of Kenya.
She believes that opportunities given are much superior than sympathies offered. Beside her career, she has developed interest to work hand in hand with little children growing up with albinism to eradicate discrimination and stigma. By achieving this, she hopes to make the society understand that people with Albinism are complete and can perform like any other human being.
She thanks Albinism society of Kenya for finding her a job placement in Safaricom Limited Company.
