Khadija Gbla grew up in Sierra Leone. As a young girl, she was subjected to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM). As a woman, she lives with the consequences of FGM everyday. She is determined that this form of abuse against young girls will end, and she wants to end it in her lifetime.
Khadija strives to combine her African and Australian heritage and values in order to advocate acceptance and equality within the community. She is our #WCW today.
