Child Soldier to Social Worker

Imagine being 16 years old, supported by your parents all your life and all of a sudden you have to fend for yourself. Fending for yourself means you have to take up an AK47 rifle and fight someone who you do not know. They did not do anything wrong to you but you have to kill them. Imagine being 16 years old and having to relocate to a different country alone to go to school, having to seek your own admissions, pay your tuition and other expenses, yet graduate successfully on time. Child Soldier to Social Worker is a compelling story and a lived experience. It is a story of resilience, survival, perseverance and determination that you should hear.
