C Liberia Clearly CEO Berenice Mulubah Says Goodbye to the United States Marine Corps and Hello to Full Time Blogging

SSGT SERGEANT BERENICE MULUBAH, UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS, 15 YEARS HONORABLE SERVICE
Over the last four years, I have written stories about many, on this blog.  Today, I get to blog about myself.  

Today is my last day in the United States Marine Corps. Oorah. 15 yrs ago, I dropped out of college studying music and enlisted into the United States Marine Corps at age 24. My oldest daughter was only 8 months old. I dropped her off to my mother and away I went. That was 2002, right after 911. Off to Parris Island, I went for training. There after, I went to my first unit, MWSS 272 NC. 3yrs later, off to Japan I went for 2yrs, then back to NC for 3 more years. During that time, I got deployed to Afghanistan for 9 months, also deployed on board the ship iwojima for 6 months, went back to Japan for 4 more years and came back to NC Camp Lejuene for 3yrs. It has been 15 years of honorable service and many sacrifices. The whole experience had its ups and downs but that goes with anything.
I am looking forward to using the same level of honor, courage and commitment the military has instilled in me, to build C Liberia Clearly blog. Growing up, entertainment was my life, but my journey took me to the military. During my time in the military, I felt in love with media and writing. I went back to college for Mass Communication. Today, I am a published author of two poetry books "Purple Honey Lips" and "Landing Safety On A Solid" and I am the proud owner of a thriving blog, my baby, my love, C Liberia Clearly. Thanks to those love ones who had my back on this journey. Thanks to my two beautiful daughters. They have been the perfect kids. It is not an easy task, being a single parent in the military, but my kids made it easy.
New path is always exciting for me. Bye bye Military, hello entrepreneur.

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…
