This Child Will be Great
In this stirring memoir, Sirleaf shares the story of her rise to power, including her early childhood; her experience with abuse, imprisonment, and exile; and her fight for democracy and social justice. She reveals her determination to succeed in multiple worlds, from her studies in the United States to her work as an international bank executive, to campaigning in some of Liberia’s most desperate and war-torn villages and neighbourhoods.
By telling her story, Sirleaf encourages women everywhere to pursue leadership roles at the highest levels of power, and give as all hope that we can change the world.
