Mirriam grew up in a crime-filled neighborhood in Lusaka, Zambia, where an estimated 60% of the population lives below the poverty line.

Thanks to the HOPE Scholarship Program, Mirriam received a degree in journalism and public relations. She’s now living her dream as a journalist for CAMNET TV, where she specializes in court, community and current affairs reporting.

I do not have the perfect words to describe how your incredible support has contributed to me being an independent young lady in a country where the majority of young women are forced to get married at a young age due to poverty. The HOPE scholarship gave me access to higher education and the motivation to achieve my goals.”
— Mirriam, age 25, ZAMBIA
