Bio:
I am sports journalist who works with the UN Radio in Liberia and served as the first female Vice President of the Sports Writers Association of Liberia. I have a BBA in Management from the University of Liberia. In 2006, I worked with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) as a Statement Taker. In 2010, I travelled with the senior national soccer team of Liberia to Mali for an African cup of Nations qualifier in Bamako with the task of covering the game and file reports back home. Following that coupled with my level of work during the year, I was awarded as the Most Improved Sports Journalist by the Sports Writers Association of Liberia (SWAL). On April 3, 2011, the UN Mission in Liberia Public Information Office certificated me for been Liberia’s only female sports journalist at the time and for my role played in the peace process of Liberia. In December 2012, I was elected as the first female Vice President of the Sports Writers Association of Liberia (SWAL). I have contributed sports stories to several local dailies in Liberia as well as online liberiansoccer.com and radiolib. My work as a sports journalist, has inspired many Liberians at home and abroad, and most young people especially females have learnt to have passion for sports. I organize soccer tournaments in different communities in the country so as to help keep kids in school. I use the tournaments to motivate them and tell them about the importance of education as well as been good children
