Last night, at the “100 Most Influential Young African Leaders” Convergence organized by the Pan African Foundation, I was, for the 3rd year back-to-back honored; along with a host of great young leaders from across Africa who had converged at the Golden Tulip Hotel for that purpose.

One thing is sure – when all this is done, my legs get slower, my jet black hair covered in grey, my voice lower and wrinkles characterize my face, my children will need no reminder who I was.” – Francis Ben Kaifala tweeted.

Amb. Phebean who was one of the awardees, shared her award on Facebook and motivated young people.

Last night I was one of six Sierra Leoneans who received an award as One of the 100 Most Influential Young Leaders in Africa. Thank you Jesus, my elevator and inspiration.

Thanks to the SEE SL LTD team.

We tell stories that enhance sensitization on issues affecting women, girls and young people.

I feel honored receiving this acknowledgment of my work. It means we’re doing something good.

It also serves as an inspiration to many young people. If Phebean as an under 30 CEO can make such impact, so can you. You’re not too young to lead.
