Let's explore his background together. Judge Willie lives in Liberia and has worked extremely hard to achieve opportunities that led him to where he is now. He has a passion for helping other people, rebuilding the justice system in his country, and fighting corruption.
In 2010 Judge Willie was admitted into the University of San Diego's International Peace and Justice masters program, and lived with my family while he studied. He received his masters and graduated with honors. In fact, this year (2017) he is returning to San Diego to receive a special award for the work he has done in Liberia. He is a key part of GLC and helps maintain relations, work out problems, and oversee St. Paul's Elementary School--the school GLC has been supporting in Liberia since 2008.
Moving to present day, this is a photo of us, screen-shotted from a video you will all be able to view soon. We were in his chambers chatting, and later moved on to explore downtown Monrovia.
Judge Willie now works in the Temple of Justice, located in Monrovia, Liberia. He remains committed to rebuilding the judicial system in Liberia, and aiding the process of educating the youth, spurring progress, and helping his country.
Judge Willie is an incredible man, facing adversity head on and tearing down any obstacles in his path; I'd call him the definition of "determined." He has come a long way from humble beginnings, and has no plans to stop anytime soon.
