About the author (2009)

Writer Immaculée Ilibagiza was born in Rwanda and studied electronic and mechanical engineering at the National University. During the Rwanda genocide in 1994, she and seven other women spent 91 days in a bathroom of a local pastor's home. She lost most of her family at this time. Four years later, she immigrated to the United States and began working at the United Nations in New York City. She is currently a full-time public speaker and writer. In 2007, she established the Left to Tell Charitable Fund to help support Rwandan orphans and others who suffered from the long-term effects of genocide and war. She has received numerous humanitarian awards including the Mahatma Gandhi International Award for Reconciliation and Peace 2007 and a Christopher Award.
