When severe draught hit her village in Zimbabwe, Elizabeth, then eight, had no idea this moment would come to define her life purpose. Unable to move from hunger, she encountered a United Nations aid worker who saved her life. Elizabeth vowed to dedicate her life to giving back to her community, her continent, and the world. I Am a Girl from Africa charts Elizabeth’s pursuit of her dream from the village of Goromonzi to Harare, London, and New York, where she became a Senior Advisor at the United Nations and launched HeForShe, one of the world’s largest global solidarity movements for gender equality.
