It’s hard to believe it’s

It’s hard to believe it’s been 🔟years since I was last in Liberia. So much has changed. I am now a wife, doctor and mother (in chronological order). Many Liberians living there will tell you not much has changed since 2007. I understand that feeling because when you live somewhere it is often difficult to appreciate the cumulative impact of small changes over time. However as a visitor looking in I humbly beg to differ. Superficially in 2007 there was no electricity without a generator and there were still shell casings from the war all around. There was an caution in the air. Today there is LEC (Liberia Electricity Corp) in several places in Monrovia. There are also many modern businesses throughout the city. Despite the uncertainty of the recent presidential election people still seem more at ease than they did in 2007. I feel hopeful for the future of Liberia and her people. Personally I truly feel as if my life has come full circle. When I went in 2007 I was assessing the effects of the #LiberianCivilWar on undergraduate science education at #UniveristyofLiberia . (A new science building has been built since then). In 2017 by God’s Grace with my hubby and team of talented University of Liberia graduates we are working to improve STEM education for Liberian high school students.I am grateful to be blessed to be part of the positive changes in Liberia , the US and beyond 💞 . . . #DrSGBollie #travel #stem #stemeducation #travel #positivevibes #hopeful #inspiration #science #biology #doctor #medstudent #nurse #womenhelpingwomen #liberian #liberia #westafrica #liberiangirl #workingmom #mom #wife #philanthropy #monrovia

Who would have guessed my firs

Who would have guessed my first #AirBnB experience would be in Liberia🤗We had an awesome time staying at Muriel’s* Place. Maureen Sieh was an excellent host. As world travelled journalist and Liberian Maureen is offers a unique and balanced perspective of Liberia. Our accommodations were convenient and comfortable. A welcomed oasis after a long day of work 😎 Thanks Maureen and Aunty Muriel. *Muriel’s place is named for Maureen’s amazing 85 year old aunt. She is still vibrant and active. #goals . . . #travel #liberia #liberiangirl #travelnoire #travelnotes #funtimes #womenhelpingwomen #DrSGBollie #westafrica

WARNING: This doesn’t float

WARNING: This doesn’t float everyone’s boat but my Africans love it so I had to do it one time for the culture. Here we have some peppered snails 🤫 boiled then smothered in stew cooked with some garlic, onions and peppers. I can assure you, you won’t find snails like this out in deez streets 😂 🐌
