Earlier today, I had the chance to sit down with ten female leaders from all across Africa who are gathered in Johannesburg as part of the @obamafoundation
Leaders: Africa program. I heard from a young woman who is providing educational opportunities to girls in rural Uganda and another leader working on HIV/AIDS prevention in Sierra Leone. I was so impressed by their perseverance, optimism, and commitment to making a positive impact. I left inspired by these young leaders who are learning from one another, working together, and building a network to continue their important work across the continent.
