Biography:

I am a Graduate student of the School of Labor and Employment Relations att Pennsylvania State University. In August, 2018, I will be graduating with Masters of Professional Studies (MPS) in Labor and Global Workers Rights (LGWR).

Also, in addition to my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communications and Management, I have had trainings in Private Sector Growth Strategies, from the Swedish Institute of Public Administration (SIPU, Sweden); Labor Market Information Systems, from the African Regional Labor Administration Center (ARLAC), Zimbabwe; ECOWAS Trade Liberalization Scheme (ETLS), Ghana; and Business and Entrepreneurship, from Drake University, Iowa, USA, as a 2017 Mandela Washington Fellow.

Over the years, I have been a full-fledged member of the Business and Human Rights Network of Liberia, advocating to ensure that employers treat their workers with dignity and respect; and Journalists for Human Rights (JHR), which is dedicated to reporting human rights related issues affecting Liberians. I have also served as the Secretary General of the Telecommunications Workers Union of Liberia, which is primarily dedicated to advocating better terms of work for field agents of Telecommunications workers in Liberia.

Also, based on my entrepreneurial instincts, I started Zenith Business Development Consultants (ZBDC), which is based in Liberia, and is dedicated to providing consultancy services to International investors intending to do business in Liberia, and to local businesses who wish grow.

During my spare time, I am a motivational speaker, mentor, teacher, and a musician.

My passion in helping people stems from my difficult childhood experiences, having lived through wars in Liberia, and had to migrate to Ghana as a refugee in 1991-94; and 1996 to 1998, respectively, where I endured some of the worst forms of child labor. My motivation is drawn from my desire to ensure that other people do not experience what I experienced.
