Cláudia is from São Tomé and Príncipe, a small set of islands off the coast of Africa. As a young person who has found the hope that only Christ can give, she desires for the youth of her country to find that same hope. She describes her relationship with Youth for Christ as “an instant connection” and articulately describes the need of the young people around her, as well as how Youth for Christ can and does help to meet that need.
