2018 is a historic year for Liberian Awards. It is the first year we recognize a class of all-female honorees. Yet our honorees were not chosen because they are women but because of their professional accomplishments in Art, Law, and Science are praiseworthy and their collective magnanimity in mentoring Liberian children soldiers, law students, and medical students is laudable. They live the immigrant story powerfully and represent Liberia proudly. Liberian Awards is honored to share and celebrate the inspirational stories of these incredible women.
People sometimes ask me why I started Liberian Awards. The shortest answer I can give is to fill a void in our community. I believe that majority of our community lacks awareness of the successes of Liberians in the Diaspora partly because of the size of the Diaspora in comparison to home.

Few things are more liberating than an education. Many immigrants and minority college students desperately strive to become liberated from the bleak future of economic poverty. But many of us close our eyes to those students striving and fixate on those who may have given up. Liberian Awards has opened its eyes to the plight of those who aggressively seek liberation through education, those who are often blinded by the harsh realities of lives, and those who would not be able to see their dreams come true without help. Knowing the needs of these high-achieving young immigrants and minorities cannot just be seen, Liberian Awards’ donors have opened their hearts and hands and sponsored scholarships and donated to the organization’s work. But we also need your help. Will you open your hearts and hands to give our students support before they have to give up on an education? Will you invest in liberating them from a bleak future by donating?

"Isn’t it great to have a Liberian organization that values the benefit of academic and professional success? Too often, it seems, our Liberian organizations focus on other values or do not honor these types of contributions and achievements. This is a good organization and there is a lot you can do to assist with its work."Patricia Minikon
