Naomi lives in central Malawi. Here we say women like Naomi are born with a "man’s heart." She overcame much adversity in her life and uses that horrible situation to inspire others around her.
Born in Zimbabwe as Elle Tina, she was the third of seven children. At 15, Naomi was raped and became pregnant with her son, Wally. She later changed her name to Naomi, inspired by Naomi in the Bible who also faced troubles but overcame them through courage.
