My name is Mercy, a young Samburu woman from Kenya. I was born in a small village, the last born of a family of six. When I was a little older we moved near the small market center of Archers Post, in the Samburu County. I was a typical Samburu girl, collecting water and firewood for our family. I was very lucky to attend school and become an educated, modern woman. I am also a single mother, living in Wamba with many Samburu Stories to tell.
