Defend Them Young
Huldah was born in Sierra Leone but spent most of her childhood life in Nigeria her paternal home and the Gambia where she gained her early education. Growing up as a young girl Huldah has always loved to repair her spoilt toys instead of asking for help from an elderly relative or the workshop. As her interest grew for repairing broken things around the home even her family trusted her to repair their broken TV and Fan.
“From high school I had already set my career goals to become a Mechanical Engineer, said Huldah. She added, most of my female friends had the perception that such courses are for boys, but I was determined to break that chain.
In 2017, Huldah enrolled at the Milton Margai College of Education and Technology (MMCET) for a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering. At that time, she was the only female among ten males “I had to work really hard to reach my set goals”, Huldah said.
As she discovered other talents within, Huldah thought of a switch to journalism. Her vision is to use the journalism platform to build on her activism for women and girls. Huldah is an alumna of Restless Development, she has also worked for a solar company named Smiling Through Light, worked at CGG (Campaign for Good Governance) as a communications officer, volunteer at Network Aid as Country coordinator, volunteer at Impact Salone as the Female Empowerment Director.
Currently a speaker and country representative in Sierra Leone for Women Ascension also the Founder and Director of Defend Them Young Orphanage and Less Privileged Home.
