Introducing myself and my journal: And Still Peace Did Not Come

About Me:
Agnes is a Journalist, Radio Producer/Presenter and Community Activist.

She helps to record stories from survivors of the war in Liberia and see how best we can talk about the trauma they have gone through during the 14 years of war. As Executive Director and founder of Straight from the Heart Project, she used the project to engage victims, witnesses and perpetrators of the Liberian conflicts, and established it as a Non-Governmental and Not-For-Profit Media network that engages in nationwide advocacy program on radio, for War Victims to voluntarily give accounts of their participation in the Liberian conflict. With her extensive engagements she thought it wise to also established counseling for Peace Building, Psycho-social and trauma healing and other aspect of integration, reconciliation, and transitional and restorative justice mechanisms.

Agnes has entirely devoted reconciliation and herself to promote healing, advocacy against war crimes, abuses and atrocities committed against humanity and their Societies during and after conflicts in Liberia. Her project Straight From The Heart is helping both victims and perpetrators of the Liberian crisis pick up the pieces and look with hopes for a better future.

Her engagements, interactions and mingling with the victims, witnesses and perpetrators, realizing their physical and emotional needs and catering to them, have given her the greatest epitome in gaining their confidences and reliance. This transitional mechanism is working well in a magnificent manner enhancing the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Liberia (TRC) and other associated organizations. This venture needs to be adopted by other countries going through similar situation that Liberia was faced with.

Agnes is very active in a variety of civic and cultural organizations that deals with victims, witnesses and perpetrators of the war in Liberia. Outside of professional interests, she likes to travel widely, read, watch documentary films and enjoys living and talking to young, needy families after the war in Liberia.
