Academic History

Few things are more important to Siebu than learning. As a young man in Liberia, he attended St. Patrick's Catholic High School in Monrovia and then moved to Cuttington University College in Suakoko to pursue undergraduate studies. Unfortunately, civil conflict within his country in the late 1980s disrupted his education.

Eventually, Samuel Siebu traveled to Ghana, West Africa as a refugee to continue his education. After obtaining a bachelor's degree at the KN University of Science and Technology, Siebu relocated to Europe and settled in The Netherlands, intent on pursuing his Master's degree. On the journey to graduate school, he worked wherever he could in menial jobs ranging from meat processing to garbage collection.

His path forward brought him to the Washington D.C. Metro area, and he completed two programs for a Master's degree. He earned a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration Management from the University of Maryland Global Campus. He also earned a Master of Business Administration from Strayer University and graduated Summa Cum Laude.

Despite achieving career success with his current education level, Siebu believes in pressing forward and will obtain his doctorate shortly.

Siebu also holds a Strategic Workforce Planning certificate earned from the Human Capital Institute.

Philanthropy and Charitable Involvement

Giving back to others is a lesson Siebu learned early, and he is committed to a wide range of charitable initiatives in the United States and Africa.

Siebu established the SOKS Foundation to promote increased literacy and educational opportunities for underprivileged girls in Liberia. Despite the availability of free basic education in the country, access to school is still not as easy for young girls and women. Foundations like SOKS help bridge the gap in several ways.
