African Queen

Overcoming adversity is a beautiful thing. The beauty that shines on the outside cannot be compared to the brightness of her inner beauty. This lovely woman fled Uganda as a child to escape turmoil and found refuge in the United States. She now is married to a wonderful man and is raising a son. While by the world's standards she may not be considered anything but ordinary , to me she is a true African Queen.
