Lorna Muthengi’s Incredible Experiences and Heartwarming Welcome in America

Lorna Muthengi, from Chuka, Tharaka Nithi county is living her American dream at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, having settled and seamlessly integrated into the diverse and supportive community at the university. Surrounded by fellow Kenyan students in The KENYA Airlift Program at the university, they have formed a tight-knit community, creating a home away from home.

She also gladly highlights the nurturing role of the professors at the university, describing them as more than just educators; rather, they serve as mentors whose guidance and support have played a crucial role in helping Lorna and her peers adjust to their new academic and social environment. Adding to her joy, Lorna expressed gratitude for securing a graduate assistantship that covers her entire tuition fees, sparing her the burden of paying a single dime.

As Lorna continues to succeed in her studies at the prestigious institution, her story highlights the positive impact of education and the support of a welcoming community. In her time here, she hasn’t just found a new home but has become an important part of the university’s global family.

The KENYA Airlift Program is an award-winning initiative that helps brilliant Kenyan Students achieve the dream of studying in the US regardless of their financial background.

The program was founded in late 2018 by US-based education & technology consultant Bob Mwiti.
