My name is Elizabeth, born and raised in Freetown Sierra Leone, West Africa in a single parent family. I grow up in the arms of my father who was an accountant very rich and influential but during the war, we lost everything and we went from been rich to poverty.
Our houses were burnt down, cars and everything we had, we went from staying in a three story building to a zinc house. I was practically raped during the war and i was 9 years old under a gun point. In 2004, I lost my father and his family took away all that he left for us, we started struggling from one place to another until today when I am not 100% successful but striving to reach success. I left school with a qualified result to enter into the university but because of some financial constrains I went to a ply-technique school. Today I am a Higher Teachers Certificate Holder with over 5 years in the NGO world.
