It's been more than a decade since Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped from her Utah home and help captive for 9 months, and she has come a LONG way since then!
Now 25 years old, she has written a book about her nightmarish time with Brian David Mitchell and his wife Wanda Barzee, titled My Story.
But in addition to giving horrific details about the horrible period in her life, she showed true bravery by returning to the actual location where she was brutally beaten and repeatedly raped for nearly a year.
Elizabeth's strength is truly unparalleled as she recounts the tales from her haunting past, and it's even more amazing to see how much she has been able to accomplish since then.
It's great to see how far she has come over the past 11 years, and we really can't wait to see what she does next!
Ch-ch-check out the inspirational interview (above)!
