My name is Eleanor Massah Abdulai, born on November 28,1988. I am a Sierra Leonean by nationality and mende by tribe. I was in Tongo Field, Kenema District, Nongowa Chiefdom. I currently live at BaiBureh Road, Ojuku, Freetown. I got my amputation during the rebel war in 1998. I stepped on a landmines in tongo.
At the moment I am studying Information System at the Institute of Public Administration and Management, I am in my second year. I am currently working with the Single Leg Amputee Sports Association, I am also on the verge to get a charity organisation that could help colleagues that are disabled especially women to be independent.
I was around age 10 when I had my amputation. I lost my dad some few years ago, my mum is still alive she’s a gardener. I am a single mother of a 5 years old daughter, Bethany. My aim in life is to tell the world that everything is possible despite been a disabled, loosing a single leg does not prevent me from becoming what I want to be. I want to be a role model to my country and the world at large.
