My participation

In this ongoing project I represent Sierra Leone and use my skills as a writer and a researcher to think of new approaches to change the dominant narrative about Africans.

I was also chosen because I am a critical thinker who seeks to analyse, theorise, and then put my research to practice to achieve positive change.

It is easy to be absorbed in all that is wrong- a lot harder to then get up and do something about it. New Narratives is a platform where I can join other spirited creators to re-imagine our world.
