President Sirleaf

Before the trip, our recommended reading was this memoir, "This Child Will Be Great" written by the current Liberian President, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. She chronicles her life through many struggles, protests, imprisonments, war, and strife to finally becoming Africa's first female president. The story is just inspiring. The book also is a good primer for Liberian politics and what's going on over here. Off to the embassy for another day.

Photos will be coming--I can't find my USB cord. Oh well.
