She was a Washington Correspondent and a member of the Canberra press gallery. For more than a decade, she was the voice of ABC Radio Current Affairs at lunchtime, and the host of The World Today.

A globally recognised educator and international women's rights advocate, Dr Ntaiya now runs an international foundation based on her ground-breaking school in Kenya which is leveraging education and knowledge to change the lives of marginalised girls. Dr Ntaiya challenged all social norms in her childhood to fight for an education and to be treated in the same way as the young men in her village in rural Kenya. She was the first Masaai woman to obtain a US education and has a PhD.
 
Sharon Tiyo
Sharon is from Enosaaen, a village in remote Kenya with no running water or electricity.
