Laura lives in the city of Beira, Mozambique on the eastern coast of Africa. She lives with her parents and siblings in a supportive family and says that she has “always loved taking care of my smaller brothers and sisters.” Her mom is a homemaker and her father is an office receptionist, so finances have always been tight in the family. In high school, Laura was invited to Young Life club and loved it. Soon after, she began meeting regularly with Beatrice, her area director; Laura says she would immediately go home from those meetings and share everything she had learned with her family. She became a Young Life leader in 2013 and has been investing in younger students in her community ever since.

Now a Developing Global Leader, she is studying psychology and has passion to make Mozambique a better place. She volunteers working in the public health sector and after graduation, wants to continue “to be proactive in investigating diseases” that are endemic in Mozambique, especially amongst the lower income populations. She is dedicated to being a role model and desires to keep working with Young Life even after she completes the DGL program. She’ll be the first person in her family to graduate from college.
