Liz’s tattoo on her left arm is a Sankofa bird. Sankofa is a West African concept symbolized as a mythical bird that flies forward while looking back with an egg in it’s mouth that symbolizes the future. “Sankofa” teaches us that we must go back to our roots to move forward. That is, we should reach back and gather the best of what our past has to teach us, so that we can achieve our full potential as we move forward.
