Exclusive Interview with Rita Jalloh

Rita Jalloh
Sierra Leonean fashion designer, Rita Jalloh has given us an exclusive interview on her  work, her experiences, and goals. Thanks to Rita Jalloh! 


 How did your career started and how have you grown over the years? 

My career started  as a girl who used to create outfits for herself, babies and dolls using pieces from old outfits or newspapers. I was very private with friends about my talent.   I have grown to be proud and comfortable with my work.  I'm not afraid to try new stuffs.  I'm not worried about criticism or even making mistakes. I'm in my own creative world if I should say. I see myself going a long way because my talent is unlimited and it speaks for itself and people love what I do because I'm different. It's a blessing to have support not only from family but also from people I don't know personally.


Why were you private with your work at first? 

Creating/designing means a lots to me. It is not just a hobby or business. Whenever I'm working on a project, I go into a different state of mind or place not everyone will understand. I go into a calm and peaceful place.    I was worried that if I didn't keep my work private, it would've ruin that moment and I wanted to take my time before going out, since I'm self thought.  



What are your plans for the future?
Currently, I have a clothing line called ThamaniAfrique.  I am debating the ideal of opening a store. 

Note: All the designs Rita is wearing in these photos were designed by her.

Open Letter to President George Weah

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

Liberian Economy."    In

order to carry out this "Pro Poor" agenda successfully,

and in order to fully empower the young generation, the Liberian Entertainment Industry must be included. 

Arts and Culture has played a critical role in keeping our young citizens gainfully employed.  From the music industry to film industry to the fashion industry, this generation has benefitted from the employment opportunities arts and culture provides. 
To extend the benefits of arts, culture and tourism, the Liberian government must support and rely on arts and culture as a key input for rebuilding our nation. There are several actions this administration should take to strengthen the role that arts and culture p…
