In 2015, I was introduced to California Bamileke Association (CALBA) by a fellow member. The mission, vision, and values of CALBA gave me an incentive to join the organization. I saw the prospect of a bigger impact on CALBA members. As an individual with a special interest in community building and community organizing, I decided to join the executive team and be an active participant in the development of a stronger community. I spent the last three years developing programs to improve individual wellbeing. I support community learning and development and CALBA offers a platform to link new members to community resources. I am excited to be part of an executive team that focuses on creating innovative solutions to build a stronger Cameroonian community in Los Angesles. My goal and that of our executive team is to bring our members together and learn from their life experiences, values, and professional goals. I look forward to working with all of you.
