Originally from Liberia, I have lived in Cameroon between 1991 and 2009. I have qualifications in International Relations and Diplomacy and have been a university lecturer until August 2009 when I relocated to Geneva, Switzerland. In terms of personality I am a confident-driven individual who reacts quickly to change; a self-starter with a strong sense of urgency who responds positively to challenge and pressure; a fast learner who is a practical and ingenuous problem solver; a fluent and articulate communicator, flexible and responsive and a self directed, goal oriented doer. In particular, experience has taught me how to build strong relationships with all departments at an organization. I have acquired the ability to work within a team and cross-team as well as the ability to work in line with given instructions with the inclination to build on my competencies through willingness to learn from others.

Spending my fourth year here I found out quite lots of thing about my self, for example I love to read, like writing and I am a person who is easy to communicate with. Also, I am good in Math and Physics, because of the high school I used to study in.
