Adama, 17, Sierra Leone

Adama was forced out of school because her parents sold her into marriage, against her will, to a man twice her age when she was 13 years old. She ran away from her husband and her parents would not take her back. Adama joined a community youth group, where she met girls with a similar experience. Since then she went back to school and is an active advocate to end child marriage in Sierra Leone, in Africa, and around the world.
