Karine K Wesseh: The Time is Now

Karine K Wesseh has a message for us all, check it out.  

"It's about time that we the youths of Liberia open out eyes and stop living that ''I DONT CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS ABOUT ME'' lifestyle, because you should care in this day and age. For so many years we have been the last in many things. We are last in graduations, We are last in marriages, we are the last in the Entertainment industry, we are the last in economics growth and worse of all, we are the very last in supporting one another successes. Regardless of all this, it is safe to say that we are not to be blame for our problems. 
LIBERIAN CIVIL WAR is the one to blame. Unlike other African countries, our country was in civil war since 1989 until 2005 when Liberia finally set up a government and had a presidential election. Due to Liberian war, most Liberian parents did not go to school, and they did not experience civilization, so they have no idea on how to be successful. With this said, most of our youths does not know the importance of education or ways of becoming successful because they had nobody to teach them. How can a parent teach a kid to ride a bike when the parent does not know how to ride a bike? Parents have more influence on a young child's life as they raise the child. Unlike Liberian parents, parents from other African countries are educated, career-driven and successful in many aspects of life because they had the opportunity, so they use their experience to motivate their children. Liberian war is over now and there will be no one to blame if we continue not to care. we have partied and danced enough so forget about the baby shower and focus on celebration your graduation day. It's never too late to fall in love so forget the man/woman who is adding no value to your success or education and go better yourself." Karine K Wesseh

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.
