We were lucky to catch her during her very busy program for a chat on the time after TEDx Amsterdam 2012.

Nice was the first role model in her Masai community, but after she stood up for her cause more and more girls are becoming role models too.

6-7 years ago there were no role models; everyone were circumcised and most of them got married at a young age (13-14 years).

In 2012, the then 21 year old Nice Nailantei Leng’ete gave her first speech ever on the TEDx Amsterdam scene.

The topic, highly controversial and disruptive, was female genital cutting, condoms, sexually transmitted diseases and malaria in her hometown Kimana, Kenya.

Furthermore, she worked with Amref Health Africa in Kenya Alternative Rite of Passage project for the last three years.
