eloquent expressions.. He speaks out his drive to uplift and motivate youth to never give up aspiring dreams on the pathway to ultimate success. His passionate vocals combined with sharing insightful readings represent the seeds for young people to root out in and flow in abundance streams that reach desired life pathways.

A Letter to My Leaders

Dear Leaders, I extend to you greetings from the founding fathers of this great continent, Africa, and bring to you a vital message from them: "Africa is sickened". My name is Verchamoh L. Kamara. I may not be as eloquent as Former President Sirleaf was, but my message to you will be as clear as...

After graduating from the Muslim Congress High School, he served multiple roles
as Assistant Secretary of its Alumni Association and also has a functional role at
Build Tomorrow Inc. as a Strategic Director of Finance and Fundraising..

I believe in a world where everybody can live freely and achieve greatness without any obstacles or hindrances.                Verchamoh L Kamara

His passion and love for humanity have routed him to be a key contributing member of multiple youth organizations on his mission to strive for a better future for all.

He is also a Co-founder and Director of Technical Service and Designs at KEY
(Knowledge Empowers You) – a platform that gives young people the opportunity
to have their voices heard in contributing solutions to real world problems.

We owe to future generation to leave behind a world that is far better than the one we inherited”       Verchamoh L Kamara

1. Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

I am driven by other’s weaknesses. I dream of a world where everybody can achieve greatness without any obstacles or hindrances. Whenever I see people with passion to do something good but lack a certain
encouragement or support in any way, I always want to help out. I believe in freedom and creating a kinder society.

My true passion is to become a wealthy businessman, one that uses his wealth, influence and resources to effect change in the lives of others, especially the youth. I believe we owe to future generation to leave behind a world that is far better than the one we inherited.

2. How did you find your passion and how old were you?

I found my passion when life put me in a situation that I had to see the reality of life at a young age. It started when I was thrown out of school for tuition during exam week.

The feeling of being kicked out of school for tuition can be very taunting especially to kids with big dreams from poor backgrounds. Thank God I didn’t have to go through this situation for a long time as I was blessed with a scholarship to continue my education.

A few years later, I notice that there were many other kids in my community not in school due to lack of financial support. This was similar to my situation and I was confronted with a question asked by my very self, “What can I do to help?” Since I could not put them in school, I decided to establish an initiative by organizing study classes where out-of-school kids can get an education and learn some basic things. I enjoy being around kids and people and I found passion in helping out with things.

3. What about your passion appeals to you the most?

It is my determination that appeals to me the most. I become committed and determined when I am passionate about things.

4. What drove you to make money from your passions?

Like every other passionate person, you need funds to sustain your dreams. It is to sustain my dreams and keep my passion alive that I decided to make money from it.

5. When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

The first time I was paid for my passion was when my dad surprised me with some
dollars as appreciation for caring for others. He said it was a
pay/reward for my love for humanity.

6. What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

It was the voices and confidence from my parents that kept me pushing through. Though there were others to criticize, their support and belief kept me going.

7. What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

“We are not successful until we help others succeed!”

It is this quotation that made me understand that until all of humanity is successful; our mission is not yet completed.

8. What advice do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you?

To other aspiring creatives who dare to dream me, I advise that you believe in your dreams no matter what others think of you. Be committed, determined, and focus and surely success is yours.

Meet #CreatePreneurAfrica Liberia’s  Tealee A Brown

Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

I enjoy meaningful work… creating and touching people’s lives in whatever little way I can.

How did you find your passion and how old were you?

Though I can’t remember the exact age, I started writing in Elementary. I had to switch schools that year and at my new school,I felt totally out of place. It was at this point that writing stepped in. Writing became my escape…My safe haven, somewhere where there was no hurdles and conflict, just utter peace and compassion.

What about your passion appeals to you the most?

What appeals to me the most is the way you can just touch someone’s life or teach somebody a valuable lesson or even change somebody’s life through your pieces. You never truly know what miracle every piece you write is performing in the life of one reader.

 What drove you to make money from your passions? 

I asked myself, “If I’m good at it, why not make it a career and make money from it?” and the answer I came up with was, “why not?”

When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

When I took part in the National Poetry Competition at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Liberia.

I didn’t necessarily make money, I was awarded a Samsung galaxy tab which I think still counts as getting paid.


 What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

Myself………
There were times I felt like and thought, why not stop writing besides I’m not even good enough and there are so many young and better writers than I’d ever be.
But there was a point when I realized that everybody has his/her own art and that no matter what I thought or how I felt, I had mine and just because my style is/was totally different and unlike that of others, it didn’t mean others were/are any better than I am.
A big Impact on me in this regard has been Ms.Patrice Juah. As I love to believe, ‘she makes it her job to keep me inspired’. My little talks with her, keeps me inspired, believing in myself and going. May God bless her.
Patrice Juah
What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

Me ………….knowing that with every piece I write, there’s a major improvement.. Secondly, I’m motivated by other writers whose works continue to touch my life and make me know that I can always be better tomorrow than I am today.

What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?

I’ll simply tell them, “Stop doubting. Start Supporting”.

What advice do you give to aspiring creatives who look up to you?

Revel in your gift and explore. Never hold back!

Meet #CreatepreneurAfrica, Patrice Juah: The shining light of Liberia

#CreatePreneurAfrica – Patrice Juah
Tell us what drives you? What is your true passion in life?

I’m driven by creativity, purposeful living, my love for my country and continent, and the desire to make a difference.

My true passion in life is to use the many gifts I’ve been blessed with, to impact lives, and leave behind an inspiring legacy for generations after me.

How did you find your passion and how old were you?

I found my passion at a very young age. As a child, I always enjoyed writing, public speaking and engaging with my community, hence my choosing to study Broadcast Journalism, and continuing to write today.

I spoke before an audience for the first time when I was about three years old and made my broadcasting debut at age 13 or 14. I also started writing at a very young age and won a national poetry competition when I was 16 years old.

Those two passions helped set the tone for the work I currently do.
And although there were times, when I somewhat deviated from them, I always found my way back.

What about your passion appeals to you the most?

What appeals to me the most about my passion is how writing, speaking, and all my other talents enable me to connect, inspire and share my experiences with people.

What drove you to make money from your passions?

I’m currently investing in my passion and making some money along the way. Earning money from my passions enables me to sustain them, and encourages me to keep pursuing my purpose. I’m consumed by my passion, and doing other things always felt draining.

As the saying goes “If you do what you love, you never have to work a day in your life.” Hence, I seek to disrupt the “struggling artist” narrative and inspire creatives to know that we too can lead financially successful and fulfilling lives.

The journey is long and arduous, but with building and investing in my projects consistently, the fruits will be remarkable someday.

When was the first time you were paid for your passion?

During my freshman year in college. It was an exhilarating experience. When I was younger, people would always tell me that the path I’d chosen would lead to a broke life; that writers, journalists and creatives, don’t make money. Doing my first commercial for a major GSM company and getting paid for it was reassuring.

What kept you going when you thought about giving up?

Giving up has never been an option for me. I stop, rest, or even cry, but the thought of giving up never crosses my mind. When I experience challenges, my faith in God, passion for what I do, support from my family and loved ones always keep me going.

Having a solid support system and people who believe in me, is empowering. Also, seeing the impact we’ve had on the girls we work with, through our educational initiatives (Martha Juah Educational Foundation and Sexy Like A Book), drives me to keep pushing.

What motivates you every day to be even more successful?

I believe many people’s destinies are tied to mine, so if I succeed, they too will. If I fail, they will as well. In order to amplify my work and help my people and country, being successful is paramount.

What do you have to say to all of the people who doubted you?

I’m so focused on my own journey to care about doubters; they’re all distractions. If I’d say anything at all, it’d be to focus their energies on their own lives and work on elevating themselves.

What advice do you give to an aspiring creative is who looks up to you?

Be authentic, bold, and convicted in pursuit of your passions. Follow them wholeheartedly and tune out distractions along the stairway to your dreams
