In this entry, I will love to show you all why I love this woman, Ms. Isha Tejan Cole-Johansen. She exudes many wonderful qualities and has the qualities of a Phenomenal Woman as described in Dr. Maya Angelou's poem.
Isha Tejan Cole-Johansen is known mostly for her work with the youth in Sierra Leone with regards to soccer. Isha is the founder of her own Sierra Leone Premier League club, FC Johansen, which she founded in 2004. She is the first woman candidate running for the presidency position in the Sierra Leone Football Association (SLFA) elections, to be held in July 2012. Isha has my support 100% and I wish her luck in the elections. I believe that whether she wins or doesn't, she will continue to promote Sierra Leone's soccer involvement due to the work she has done in the past and currently.
Isha Tejan Cole-Johansen is an activist in breast cancer awareness in which she founded the Pink Charity Fund organization. Isha is also the founder of Women of Excellence program; she uses it as a platform to recognize and award women in Sierra Leone and the Diaspora. She has now registered Women of Excellence as a global organization, in which other countries can host their women, and other women who have inspired the women of their country. Isha is the former publisher of Rapture magazine, the first entertainment magazine in Sierra Leone. She is also the former publisher of KABO magazine, Sierra Leone's in-flight magazine.
I highly admire Ms. Tejan Cole-Johansen's drive and passion for soccer, sports management, youth empowerment, women's advancement, and humanity as a whole. I consider her a great role model to many, especially the youth, girls, and women of today.
