Georgiana Abisordun Johnson
Georgiana Abisordun Johnson was born and raised in Sierra Leone, West Africa. She was educated in Zambia, England and the U.S. She holds a B.S. in Management from Long Island University; a Diploma in Paralegal Studies from the College of Staten Island; a Masters of Divinity from New York Theological Seminary; and a Doctorate in Theology from the International Theological Seminary of California.
Georgiana believes in empowering the poor "for the poor will always be with you."
Georgiana is on the board of various organizations who share her humanitarian belief: Empowering the less fortunate, so that they, too, are able to experience the meaningfulness of life.
She conducts workshops on dos and don'ts to "missioners" — a new term she coined — because she takes volunteers not only with Christian backgrounds, but those who are from outside the Christian faith as well — to volunteer their services to the poor, the displaced and those whom society have labeled as outcasts, especially in Sierra Leone.
Georgiana makes herself available to teach the history of Sierra Leone. She holds sessions with adults, youth and children in non-traditional settings, as she believes that "conversation can be a means to healing and closure."
Georgiana is also currently active with students who want to turn their dreams of attending medical school into reality. Visit Georgiana-Abisordun-Johnson.com to find out more. You can also become her friend on Facebook to keep up-to-date with WWSL news.
Georgiana is married to Theodore Raymond Johnson. Together they have two daughters, Theodora Femi Cecilia Johnson and Rayana Ebun Augusta Johnson. Theodora and Rayana are in graduate school pursuing their dreams of becoming physicians in a few years, so that they can work and volunteer in the U.S. and outside of the U.S., in underserved areas.
"I want to be known as the woman who made a difference in the lives of the less fortunate," she emphasizes.
