E2 S7: Reimagining Liberia’s high-school education with Wainright Y. Acquoi

Summary & Key takeaways

Wainright is reimagining Liberia’s high school education and he is not even done with his Bachelor’s degree.  He defied the inherent odds of socio-economic inefficiencies, and now works every day to empower the thousands of young people who are vulnerable and victims of the failed education and workforce development systems through his very own edutech incubator: TRIBE.

In Episode 2 of Season 7 Wain shares how to build not only your career of impact, but how to do so as a West African young entrepreneur.  Wain shares his own background, his undergrad and work experience in Liberia; his studies in the U.S. (including becoming a Watson Institute Scholar) and how he founded his own social enterprise.
