Who is Yabom Thaslim Sesay-Koroma ?
This is her profile given by her own self when she declared her candidacy months ago :
My name is Yabom Thaslim Sesay-Koroma. I was born in Bumbuna in the Northern Province of Sierra Leone. I attended the Roman Catholic Primary School, in Bumbuna and the Government Secondary School for Girls, Magburaka. After the completion of my High School education, I proceeded to the Magburaka Secondary School for Boys to pursue my sixth form studies. I taught at the Services Secondary School in Freetown from 1979-1980 after passing my GCE Advance Level Examination. I was then awarded a scholarship to study at the Odessa Institute of National Economy in the former Soviet Union, where I graduated with a Master of Science degree (MSc) in Finance and Credit in 1986. Answering to the call for national duty, I returned home in 1988 and was gainfully employed as an Assistant Manager in the Management Account Office at the Sierra Leone Produce Marketing Board (S L P M B) from 1988-1992.
I immigrated to the United States of America in 1993 and entered into the nursing field career. The genesis of my career change was humbling, as I started from the grass root level as a Nursing Assistant, walked through the stages until I graduated with a Master of Science degree specialized as an Advanced Nurse Clinician
