More About Liz Forkin Bohannon

In one of those spontaneous moments that can turn a life around, Liz booked a flight to Uganda to launch a new career.

Liz will share her story of how she combined her passion for women and girls, a journalism degree and a pair of strappy sandals to create a not-just-for-profit venture that is enabling girls in Uganda to go to college and inspiring women everywhere to Be Brave.
