Jeff Siaw joins Africans in Boston as new Executive Director.
Jeff was born and raised in Accra, the capital city of Ghana, and did not move to the United States until his senior year of American high school. As the oldest of three, he has always been in the position of a role model within his family for both his parents and his younger brothers paving the way for how to pursue the “American Dream” leading by example. Working his way up the sales ladder at AT&T was a difficult balance with a full time 15 credit course load at Worcester State University, but the inspiration to continue to learn in the classroom paired with his determination to work through uncertainty kept him motivated and ready to tackle the two jobs. After becoming the first college graduate in his family, he simultaneously worked to become the number one manager for all of AT&T (Spring Mobile authorized retailer) ,also the youngest out of 1600 managers across the country. By most, this job and milestone is it for achieving the American dream. “For me, this is not enough; my path is just beginning and I want to continue to develop my leadership and entrepreneurial skills to be able to affect change in the U.S. and Africa” said Jeff Siaw.
Jeff will lead efforts in getting the next generation involved with the work currently underway at Africans in Boston and will be involved with strategic programs in education.
