Irene Gakwa is an aunt, sister, and daughter who moved to the United States in May 2019 from Kenya as a student to join her family. She was working towards a nursing career at Gillette College to help take care of those in need. She loves chai tea with bread every morning and is always smiling and laughing.
Irene was last seen by her family on February 24th, 2022 on a video call. She had recently moved from Boise, Idaho to Gillette, Wyoming with her boyfriend at the time. Although she was very independent, her family and friends became very concerned after not hearing from her and unusual responses to attempts to contact her and filed a missing persons report on March 20, 2022.
