In this touching TEDx Talk Michaela DePrince, born Mabinty Bangura, shares her story and shares how she was able to maintain her dreams and pursue happiness. A greatly inspiring person and kind enough to share her life with others, even though it was not always like in the fairytales. Thank you Michaela!
