KJ lives in the village of Adagya, West Africa. Unwanted by her mother, KJ was forced to live in the streets, homeless. KJ missed most of her education for many reasons. Unable to support herself , she sold herself for food and daily needs. Before she was 16 KJ became pregnant and lost her child.
In 2013, KJ was offered a scholarship through Operation Dignity International. The scholarship provided her sewing lessons, a much used craft in her area. In January 2014, KJ began creating bags and African bead bands for CEED.
