Satta also joined us in 2012 as a volunteer. She was in high school back then, but very passionate about empowering young girls to dream and pursue their dreams. Through our programs, Satta has been able to transform her passion into a reality. Today, after some six years, Satta has launched a natural hair product company to empower young women to feel and be beautiful. Not only is she creating economic value, she is challenging stereotypes and creating a path for other young women to follow.

Serina Chaya

Serina Chaya is a crochet designer whose dream is to bring back the old fashion crochet into the modern fashion world in Liberia.
Upon her graduation from high school, her mother started to teach her how to crochet – a skill she had in turn learned from her aunt (Serina’s grandaunt). Serina, already in love with fashion, decided to explore different crochet styles and designs like swimsuits, bags, sandals, etc. Serina learned how to crochet in one day, and made her first bikini top. She then made bikini suits and bare foot sandals. In 2016, she signed up to have her crochet designs showcased during the Monrovia Fashion week, which gained a lot of traction.She later decided to start making deliveries and sales of her work. Now her goal is to expand her business and ideas by getting others that she can teach and work with to open a fashion house.
