Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton embraces Triza Lapani, 17, after the teen helped Clinton put on a chitenje cloth, a traditional skirt, after speaking at Camp GLOW (Girls Leading Our World) run by the Peace Corps, in Lilongwe, Malawi.

Her health got in the way and she was sidelined by circumstances beyond her control.
