Winnie Byanyima is the first African director of Oxfam, with an incredible life story. As a teenager she fled to the UK from Idi Amin's Uganda. From next to nothing she went on to get a degree in aeronautical engineering, become a Ugandan MP, work with the UN and is now the first African director of the charity Oxfam.
