Ngozi Cole is a storyteller who believes in the power of individual narrative for transformative collective change. Born in the 1990s during Sierra Leone’s brutal civil war, she became a refugee in The Gambia. As a refugee, she witnessed and experienced many injustices and this sparked an interest in human rights. In 2008, she was awarded a scholarship to join the inaugural class of the African Leadership Academy. Ngozi graduated Cum Laude from the College of Wooster in May 2015, where she majored in History and Political Science . Ngozi is a 2013 recipient of the National Youth Excellence Award for Leadership in Sierra Leone, an exhibition of her deep commitment to her country.
