In 1974, a 19-year-old from Sierra Leone came alone to this country determined to make her way. Born into poverty, she learned a strong work ethic and many other lessons from her parents. A popular budding radio/tv personality at a young age, she dreamed of a college degree and to pursue broadcasting. Quickly running out of money, she successfully worked a variety of jobs, but was never able to accumulate enough cash to return to school. She married a young man whose dreams and ambitions, she soon realized, did not match her own, and eventually ended up on the street, penniless, homeless, and with a baby. Desperate, she found help and encouragement at a women's shelter, and renewed her determination to succeed. Banking classes through the welfare system gave her entr�e to a new world, where she rose through the ranks. She also met her future second husband there. Eventually hitting a glass ceiling, she and her husband decided she should try running her own company, a commercial cleaning business.
