Personal story

Josephine's Story

My name is Josephine Murphy; I am glad to share my story with you because I know that I can use it to touch and change other people's lives. I wouldn't be the same person I am today without the things I have seen in my life. I hope that my story will help others to get stronger for whatever situation they are facing today. My twin sister and I are the 7th and 8th of 10 children not including 3 adopted ones. We were born in Burundi but my family is from Rwanda. We had a lot of struggles as it is for most African families.
