Elizabeth lives in Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone with her six brothers, her mother and father. Growing up, Elizabeth remembers her childhood fondly, but also describes herself as somewhat of a trouble maker when she was younger. Both of her parents are community health workers in Freetown. Elizabeth has had to overcome some unbearably difficult circumstances in her life, but has handled the hurdles in her life with much grace.

Elizabeth met Jesus at a Young Life summer camp in 2012. After camp, she began regularly attending Young Life club. She became a Young Life leader a few years later, and is now mentoring young girls in her community.

Now as a Developing Global Leaders student, Elizabeth is attending Fourah Bay University where she is studying law. She dreams of becoming a humanitarian lawyer to be a voice for the voiceless. Due to experiences in her own life, she is passionate about defending those who cannot defend themselves. Her recommender describes her as “passionate in leading teenagers to Christ.” She will be the first in her family to graduate from college.
