Tina Organization - Founder
I am nominating this person because I am the nominee. I have escaped 3 rape attempts, had my mother die in my arms at the age of 18, was abused emotionally and psychologically by one of my close family members, chased out of what I knew as home my entire life, but that never deterred me. I understood from a very young age that whatever I become, is who I choose to be. I chose not to be a victim of my circumstances and chose to harness that power that lies within me. As I am speaking I am the only girl in my village who’s studying abroad, my life and resilience are an inspiration to a lot of young girls back home in South Africa.
