Mabinty Bangura / Michaela DePrince

I love to read biographies – not the biographies of celebrity socialites, but of everyday seemingly ordinary people, especially those that insipre hope and perseverance. I recently finished reading two such incredible stories about two young ladies who have overcome insurmountable odds. One is from the slums of Katwe, Uganda; the other is an orphan from war-torn Sierra Leone. Both Phiona Mutesi and Mabinty Bangura (Michaela DePrince) are two inspiring young women who have extraordinary tales to tell.
