I went to Ghana as a volunteer with ICS and International Service and I heard many fascinating stories from the inspirational women I met and I knew that I had to share them. I wanted to dispel the idea that people in developing countries are desperate and constantly in need. The images we see in the media are usually that of starving children or helpless women but the women I met were incredibly strong. They were brave. They were intelligent. They were fierce. And I want to tell their stories.
