His father’s name is Augustine Dunor and his mother is Korpo Amara.  Momo is the second son of three boys and he has four sisters. He is a devoted Muslim.

 

Momo comes from the traditional African family. As a little boy, he did not know his real parents. He lived with his grandmother in a village somewhere in Lofa. After the death of his grandmother, he decided to begin his education in an effort to succeed in life. However, due to the civil crisis in Liberia, he fled with many others to neighboring Sierra Leone for refuge.

 

When the civil war subsided, Momo returned to Liberia and continued his education. Due to the economic changes that he and his family are faced with, he has only being able to afford studying at public (government) schools. Currently he is an 11th grade student at the Williams V. S. T High School on 12th Street in Monrovia.

He believes that winning this event will change his life completely by enabling him to complete high school and attain higher education at one of the local universities in Liberia.
