The struggle of her early years helped Finda form her spiritual life
and grow in her faith. She also looked into other people's lives and "charged myself to take up the challenge in helping other people who were in the same struggle."
Finda attended Fourah Bay College at the University of Sierra Leone

certification in management and administration from the Graduate School
of Management in London through the Ghana campus. Finda completed
studies in design, management and evaluation of community-based HIV/AIDS
programs through Global Health Action. She has attended numerous
seminars in Europe, Africa and the United States addressing issues
Spending two months in Hong Kong working with migrant workers from
the Philippines, Indonesia, Nepal and Sri Lanka, Finda saw how
vulnerable they were to injustices of sexism, racism and other inhuman
treatment. Working with women enabled her to see how women are
suffering in that part of the world, "all in the name of survival. I
returned home with the conviction and commitment to do my best in
making sure women and children get a better place in Africa."
Finda is married and has one son and two adopted children.
