She attended Woodlands Park Primary School and Kensington Avenue Primary School. At the age of 12, they moved to Atlanta, United States where she attended Marrietta Middle School and North Cobb High School. She started acting while a freshman in high school. Wawira said, "I really used to be very shy, so I wanted to kind of put myself out there. So I decided to join drama club and theater. I fell in love with it. I fell in love with telling a story, making people feel emotions."[5]
