Preparing for the High School Dance, 1954
Mother Teresa was born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in Skopje, Macedonia, on August 26, 1910. Her family was of Albanian descent. At the age of twelve, she felt strongly the call of God. She knew she had to be a missionary to spread the love of Christ. At the age of eighteen she left her parental home in Skopje and joined the Sisters of Loreto, an Irish community of nuns with missions in India.When she took her vows as a Sister of Loretto, she chose the name Teresa after Saint Thérèse of Lisieux. (via Early Years of Mother Teresa)
You know her as an activist and as the wife of Martin Luther King Jr., but did you know that Coretta Scott King was an accomplished singer and violinist? As a young soprano, she studied at the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
