Lauraine is a courageous and intelligent young woman from a suburb of Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. She lives with her parents and siblings and recalls her childhood as peaceful, experiencing great love within her family. She feels that she can “give great love because she has received great love.” Invited by a friend to Young Life camp, Lauraine experienced the greatest love upon hearing the Gospel; she began a relationship with Jesus, resting in the fact that he is always by her side. She is compelled, as a Young Life leader, to pour into girls in her community with the unconditional love of Jesus.

Now, as a Developing Global Leader, she realizes a dream she had willingly sacrificed for the sake of her siblings’ educations – the pursuit of a college degree in tourism at the Institute Superior of Professional Formation (ISFOP) in Abidjan. She has a passion for travel and adventure and wants to help provide experiences for others. She also is passionate to continue in her ministry with Young Life, hoping to be a part of establishing more clubs in more communities to reach more kids with the Gospel. Lauraine’s goals for her time in the DGL program are to sow back into Young Life by growing in her ministry skills through leading club and Campaigners. She is committed to her education and earning high marks and working towards her future goals in order to serve her community and her family.
