When Lucy was only two years old, her mother was beaten to death by her father. It has been rumored that Lucy's father committed suicide or was sent to jail for life as a result. Lucy's aunt, who already had four children, became the sole caregiver for Lucy and Lucy's brother. When Lucy’s aunt became pregnant with a fifth child, she placed Lucy in an orphanage (the Rift Valley Children’s Village). When Lucy first arrived, she was frightened and angry; and because she had been mistreated emotionally and physically for so many years, it was feared that she would never recover. However, today she can chatter for hours, loves to play sports, and is dubbed the resident "busybody" of the orphanage. She is a tall, athletic young lady with a flamboyant personality and compassionate spirit. She is in the top of her classes and the leader of a girl’s club at the orphanage that teaches English speaking skills and confidence.
