I was brought to tears by this powerful woman and her courageous story. Hibo Wardere is a Gutsy Goddess, activist, writer, educator, and survivor of FGC (Female Genital Cutting). At six years old she was forced to go through FGC and almost died. After four decades of silence she speaks out against this abuse of our world’s children. Her courageous words ring true, “Children’s wellbeing belongs to everybody, regardless of color, race, or religion. Children are universal; their wellbeing belongs to everybody in the world. What hurts a child, what hurts another human being—hurts you.” This is an important read.
