I attained my JD equivalent degree (LL.B Hons) with distinction (first class) at age 23, passed my bar exams as one of the top 5 students in Sierra Leone at age 24, and became a public health lawyer (LL.M in National and Global Health Law) at age 25. With a Master of Laws from NYU, I aim to attain additional technical training to study the intersection between public health and economic advancement to influence policymaking processes in developing countries,” she stated.
