Grace Yufela is the fourth child in a loving family of seven. She grew up during the era in Cameroon, Africa where the girl child had no opportunity to go to school, but was forced into early marriage. Grace’s parents broke the taboo of not sending girl children to school and sent Grace to school. Grace went to St Joseph Girl’s Primary School, Bamenda; St Augustine’s College, Nso and went for further Studies to Britain where she studied Secretariat Duties. Upon return from abroad, she was employed full time as a Secretary with the then Cameroon Airlines. Three years into her career, she had her first Mental Health Crisis, which degenerated into an extreme challenge for the family and community who for two decades have not had answers why a young prosperous young lady could suddenly become a "crazy" woman.
