Our CEO & Founder Aminata Conteh-Biger shares her personal story with ABC Conversation's Richard Fidler. She talks about survival and resilience from being kidnapped during the civil war in Sierra Leone.

Aminata shares about her experience of being captured and abused by rebel soldiers, her release, and journey to Australia as a refugee.

After the birth of her first daughter, Aminata also shares her journey in founding the Aminata Maternal Foundation and it's mission to help improve maternal health for women in Sierra Leone.

"Today was one of those days that I got to remind myself to never forget how far I have come and, most importantly, to never forget my strength and what I am capable of. I am so grateful for my life every single day." - Aminata Conteh-Biger
