Senna is a fearless 17-year-old from Peru whose courage and passion for learning is helping pave the way to a better future for her and her family. Senna comes from the bleak mining town of La Riconada and is featured in Girl Rising—the film at the center of a global campaign for girls’ education. Strengthened by her father’s resolve, her love of poetry, and the help of CARE, her family moved to a city with better schools. Today, Senna is a thriving high-school graduate who will study business at university.
Senna will kick off Women in the World with an opening performance on the evening of April 3rd.
