was born in the town of Bamenda, North West Province, Cameroon.
Being the first of three children, my parents invested a
lot—resources, energy, and love—to make me what I am today,
and to ensure that I be a good example to my siblings. I
went through my elementary, secondary, and high schools
in the North West Province. My undergraduate degree in Economics,
I obtained from the University of Buea, a little mountain
town in the South West Province of the country. I graduated
from there with honors, which immediately landed me a good
job with the Standard Chartered Bank in the capital city,
It was a
good experience. 11 months later, I quit my job as an operations
assistant at the bank and left for Haifa, Israel, where
I worked with Baha’i international counselors for two years.
These were some of the best years of my life. I grew up
a lot—spiritually, mentally, and intellectually—whilst in
Israel. Working constantly in collaboration with some 800
other Baha’is from over 80 countries around the world, as
well as communicating with Bahá’ís all over the world, was
indeed an enriching experience. The beautiful and serene
Baha’i gardens also set a good stage for self reflection.
I enjoyed my stay there.Just in case you are wondering,
I am from a Baha’i family. That is our religion. You can
learn more about the Baha’i Faith at http://www.bahai.org.
Currently, I am working on my Master’s degree program in
Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance,
at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond.
in life has always been to engage in an occupation that
will provide obvious gratification to my fellow man. I like
to be out there doing something that will help another.
A great person once said, and I am paraphrasing, that you
can only say that you were successful while on this earth
when another person breaths better because you lived. That’s
my philosophy, and that has shaped most of my activities
while growing up. I have taken part in youth projects to
promote youth moral education, humanitarian activities,
moral teaching projects, social and economic development
projects, NGO seminars, children’s moral instruction, among
others. My main hobbies are reading and engaging in sports
like volley ball, tennis, and jogging. I also enjoy challenging
games like puzzles, scrabble, etc.So, I can safely say that
I have had a blessed life so far. One lesson I have learned,
especially in the recent past, is that my family does not
end with my nuclear family. I have a wealth of friends out
there who are like brothers and sisters, and mothers and
fathers, and who will not hesitate to do all in their power
to make me happy and comfortable. And to them, I am forever
indebted. That, on top of a wonderful family and a great
husband-to-be, what more is there to ask from life?
