A powerful memoir about a girl from Africa whose near-death experience sparked a dream that changed the world.
When severe drought hit her village in Zimbabwe, Elizabeth, then eight, had no idea this moment of utter devastation would come to define her life’s purpose. Unable to move from hunger, she encountered a United Nations aid worker who gave her a bowl of warm porridge and saved her life. This transformative moment inspired Elizabeth to become a humanitarian, and she vowed to dedicate her life to giving back to her community, her continent, and the world.

Elizabeth has been instrumental in creating change in communities all around the world, uplifting the lives of others, just as her life was once uplifted. This memoir vividly brings to life one extraordinary woman’s story of persevering through incredible odds and finding her true calling – while delivering an important message of hope and empowerment in a time when we need it most.
