"I Am a Girl from Africa" is an inspiring memoir by a Zimbabwean girl, Elizabeth Nyamayaro whose near-death experience sparked a dream that changed the world. The upcoming book, to be released on the 20th April has been handpicked among 20 of the best books to read this April, rain or shine by Oprah Winfrey's Oprah Daily website.

Grounded by the African concept of ubuntu—“I am because we are”— I Am a Girl from Africa charts Elizabeth’s quest in pursuit of her dream from the small village of Goromonzi to Harare, London, New York, and beyond, where she eventually became a Senior Advisor at the United Nations and launched HeForShe, one of the world’s largest global solidarity movements for gender equality. For over two decades, Elizabeth has been instrumental in creating change in communities all around the world; uplifting the lives of others, just as her life was once uplifted. The memoir brings to vivid life one extraordinary woman’s story of persevering through incredible odds and finding her true calling— while delivering an important message of hope and empowerment in a time when we need it most.

Elizabeth Nyamayaro is an award-winning humanitarian and former United Nations Senior Advisor on Gender Equality. Born in Zimbabwe, Elizabeth has worked at the forefront of global development for over two decades improving the lives of underserved populations and has held leadership roles at the World Bank, World Health Organization, UNAIDS, and UN Women. I Am a Girl from Africa is her first book.
