Musa Sherif

Liberia & University of the Witwatersrand, 2022

Musa is a graduate of the African Leadership University where he studied Global Challenges and serves as president of its Alumni Association.

Having worked in areas of development, governance, and social impact, he recently co-founded the Africa Policy and Futures Forum; a new generation think tank at which he and a team of young African leaders conduct critical, place-based, and solution-driven dialogues on Africa’s grand socio-economic challenges.

Musa identifies as an incurable Afro-optimist, he sees Africa as a continent and a civilization of immense potential, and believes that the future of Africa is beautiful. Inspired by his harsh childhood experience with poverty and inequality, Musa intends to pursue a career in Public Policy and International Development that will allow him to create workable, cost-effective, and sustainable solutions to the many intractable socio-economic challenges that face his people and his continent.
