Betty wants to share her story to reach out to other young people who are suffering. She recounts the story of being abducted at 12-years-old by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a rebel army group, and forced to become a child soldier. When she escapes and returns to her village two months later, she finds it is deserted and can’t find her grandmother. Once reunited in a nearby village, she encounters the stigma, but also support from her family. With this support and counseling, she is currently in school and dreams of being a nurse.
