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.
