Sarah Ireland is the CEO of One Girl, an Australian non-profit organization that harnesses the power of education to drive change for girls and their families in Sierra Leone and Uganda.
We fell in love with Sarah’s story from questioning her ability to be a CEO to breaking her own glass ceilings and redefining what a CEO should be and thus paving the way to inspire females of all ages to never shay away from their dreams.
