As a Prince of the Baleng in West regional, Cameroon, Africa, I came to the United States in 2003 already a recognized photojournalist. I had become a staff photo reporter for Cameroon Radio and National Television, and Libre Afrique. The celebrated work, “Cameroon’s 100 Faces of Poverty” was shown simultaneously in the nation’s ten states. My list of humanitarian interests, documenting poverty, education and health issues led me to Africa Express Magazine, Africa International Magazine, and Jeune Afrique Economie, headquartered in Paris.
An invitation in 2002 by the U.S. Ambassador in Cameroon to speak about the challenges of being a photojournalist in an unfriendly political environment and a nomination for a photojournalism award by the Global Health Council brought him to Washington, D.C. I became a member in the American Society of Media Photographers. French-speaking I mastered English before his move to California to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Journalism at Brooks Institute. Upon graduation I received the Outstanding Achievement Award and was chosen as the Keynote Speaker for commencement. While attending Brooks Institute, the city of Ventura, in California created a class so that I can teach high school student whiling to pursue the education in the field of photojournalism. It was a great opportunity to teach and see my student be happy of what they were learning.
More recently he has been selected by the Career College Association (CCA) to receive a 2009 GREAT Award in recognition of excellence, achievement and talent.
I just enrolled school for my Master of Arts.
