Early in life, FannyAnn was forced out of her country and into a refugee camp because of the civil war. Despite the danger she lived in, being both a refugee and queer, Eddy was never silent. In those years, Eddy revealed the strength of her character and compassion.

She fought to have the needs of others in her community acknowledged, and she fought hard, not stopping a moment for convenience or even her safety.
