I started this blog as a way to keep in touch while in Liberia, summer ’11 where I was a fellow at the Ministry of Planning and Economic Affairs of Liberia, assisting the Government in developing the country’s Medium Term Growth and Development Strategy. After finishing up a degree in Public Policy at Harvard University, Kennedy School of Government, I moved to Geneva for my next career move. Want to get in touch?

  1. You’re awesome, Hala! Keep up the great work. I’m looking forward to reading your blog while you out in Monrovia. Stay safe!

  2. Great work! Keep it up!! I’m so interested in hearing about all the work you’re doing there! Keep sending us updates! Much love.

  3. Hi Hala,
    I’m here just to submit the words and share the thoughts and feelings of a very proud man. A man that is very far in distance but keeps you close to his thoughts. You have no idea how proud and happy I am right now. The course of your actions, studies and thoughts are incredibly awesome (couldn’t find another word). We all need help in our lives, as people, as families, as societies and as countries. I would like to congratulate you for the missions you accepted until now Hala, all of them, Liberia and Center for International Development and the rest got the chance to find one of the shining beacons of light they needed.
    Keep up the good work!
    Your proud cousin Jeano

  4. Hello,

    My name is Daniel and I am the Director of The Spine Africa Project (www.spineafricaproject.org). I have closely followed your website and think your efforts are amazing.

    In that vein I wanted I wanted to share with you an article I have written regarding a charity and its implications with The Dodd Frank Bill (Section 1502). The goal of this charity is to address the vast amount of spinal injuries in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The article is below.


    My hope was that you could share this article in your reportings so that people are aware of what is going on in the DRC in regard to the mining sector and conflict minerals. Please review the article and let me know your thoughts. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
