LMF Updates from Liberia

Welcome to My Blog My Liberia Visit!

I am always excited to visit Liberia and to check in with my team on the great work they continue to do for the Lena Marshall Foundation. On this occasion, I was delighted to meet our mentees who participated in our three months mentorship program.

Malala Film Screening

In 2012, Taliban assassins targeted 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai for speaking out against the

closing of schools to girls in her area. Miraculously surviving a gunshot to the head, Malala

has used her experience to become an advocate for girls’ education around the world and

the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. This documentary charts her rise to

prominence and her defiant recovery.

LMF hosted the following Schools: St Teresa's Convent, Kingdom Builders International school and Muslim Congress High School.

Our mentorship program has been an eye opener for me and my team. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having a mentor. A mentor will support you, cheer you on, provide feedback, advice, and help you define and reach your goals. It can be a key relationship in your life and one that has the potential to impact your choices and career trajectory significantly.
