Lilian is a Medicine student at Egerton University, passionate about reproductive health awareness. Lilian joined the Global Give Back Circle in 2009 and has served as an Ambassador.

Through her work and commitment to giving back, Lilian was selected to represent the Africa Union as a delegate at the 2011 G(irls)20 summit in Paris, France. There, she championed the problems girls and women face in Africa, while offering possible solutions. Lilian has since started a reproductive health awareness program from the lessons she has learned through workshops and the Girls20summit.
