Nyibol Bior was a year old when Sudan entered its second civil war. At five, she was torn from her Sudanese home and sent to an Ethiopian refugee camp. At the age of eight, she walked over a thousand miles, seeking refuge and stability from the war. Thirty-eight years later, Nyibol now teaches high school students in Dolores, Colorado, inspiring children and giving them the strength to persevere through their own struggles.
She has a new children’s book – My Beautiful Colors: A Refugee Story due to be released this spring.
