at sassysagesays we often highlight girls/women who are doing amazing things.  so we had to give a shout out to 22 year old fatu kekula!  

fatu blogfatu is a nursing student in liberia, who sprung into action when several of her family members caught ebola.   thinking on her feet, she patched together supplies; even using trash bags as her protective gear.  not only did she save her family members but she also never caught ebola herself!
