Esther Phiri

If you’re in the mood for another narrative that will leave you a little choked up and believing in people’s ability to rise from improbable beginnings take a walk with me, and read about the story of Esther Phiri.

Esther, a Zambian boxer, has amassed 7 titles in just 13 matches. She has survived life as an orphan, being a single mother at 15, selling vegetables in a market to become Zambia’s most popular athlete with a world title nonetheless!
