The boy Soldier
Ishmael Beah explains what it was like going through the war and his experiences and how he recovered after war.
About Ishmael Beah
Ismael Beah was born on november 3rd 1980 in Sierra Leone. At the age of 13 he was forced to become a child soldier. After three years at war Ishmael was finally rescued by a group of UNICEF soldiers. After he was rescued he said the hardest thing to get over was dealing with the addictions to all the drugs the soldiers forced him into doing.
Ishmael attended Oberlin College which is the school for the united nations. Ishmael graduated with a degree in social science. Ishmael is currently a united nations worker and occasionally does events where he talks about his experiences.

you are a group of people that has lived
in a country with child soldiers
