24 year old Adama Kamara got burnt during the war in Sierra Leone

#envizageconcepts did a photo shoot of the untold story of 24-year-old Adama Kamara, a beautiful black model from Sierra Leone that got burnt during the rebel war. She was 9 years old when it happened. A bomb was dropped in the apartment building she was living. 12 people died and Adama suffered third degree burns from her neck to her back. Only her and grandfather survived.

As she grew, she went through years of abuse from her school peers and fought the psychological battle of self-acceptance. Adama was called ‘roast roast’ (burnt child) by her peers in secondary school and this resulted to her living a solitary life. Today, she has learnt to accept her imperfections and feels BOLD, BLACK and BEAUTIFUL.
