President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, our 2019 Peace Hero

Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was not only the first female president of Liberia from 2006-2018, she was the first elected female head of state in Africa. In 2011, she was jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for her “non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.” President Sirleaf is also credited for her efforts to bring peace to Liberia after a prolonged and brutal war. She encourages all people to dream big and to do the work to achieve their dreams. “The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve them. If your dreams do not scare you, they are not big enough.” President Sirleaf dreams big and she makes her dreams come true!

We are honored and humbled to present our 2019 Peace Hero Award to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, at the unforgettable and inspirational gala. We hope you can join us!
