Summary
From a glittering life running Vogue to a mud hut in Ghana, a fashion icon now offers hope to thousands of lost children. After an essay contest at 18 landed her a plum internship at Anna Wintour's British Vogue, within a year Lisa Lovatt-Smith became the youngest photo editor in the history of Conde Nast and at 21 she was tapped to head Spanish Vogue. Lisa's meteoric rise soon saw her hosting lavish parties with celebrities like the Rolling Stones, Madonna and Andy Warhol. By her mid-thirties, she had a dream career, a wardrobe to die for, and a beautiful home in Paris. But a decision to volunteer at an orphanage in Ghana changed her life- and many others forever. Confronted with the horrifying reality of the orphan's lives, Lisa is shocked out of her privileged life. She quits her job, sells her house and within18 months abandons her glamorous life to move to Ghana, determined to make a difference. Today, Lisa lives in a mud hut in Ghana, from where she oversees her award-winning OrphanAid Africa, helping thousands of children separated from their families by poverty, AIDS or the exodus to the cities. WHO KNOWS TOMORROW it is a powerful and inspiring true story of a remarkable woman who reminds us all of what truly matters
