Are you sure this girl was Somali?

I can find many references to girls and women named Athieng through Google, but so far they are all from southern Sudan, not from Somalia. I would also assume that most Somali girls would have Islamic given names ultimately derived from Arabic, and Athieng certainly does not look like such a name to me.
