Born in Liberia, West Africa – Cecil tragically lost both parents at an early age to brutal assassination and food poisoning. During the Liberian civil unrest, he was forced to watch as his sisters were savagely raped and subsequently murdered by combatants. His compassion for reconciliation is deeply rooted in his realization that unification is the key of coexistence.
Cecil possessed a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and is currently obtaining his Master Degree in Conflict Resolution.
