Nice Nailantei Leng'ete, a 21 year old Maasai girl from Kenya, is a true agent of change in opening up the discussion in her Maasai community on female genital mutilation. Nice brings girls together to talk about their bodies and their rights. She realized that to make real progress she had to speak with the boys as well. Nice has been honored for her work with an 'oringo orok' -- a Maasai leader's talking and walking stick -- and a cultural symbol for leadership.
