MONROVIA, December 14 (LINA) – Miss United Nations 2015, Sherrie Gearheart, has challenged Liberian youths to live a drug and alcohol-free life and “make a decision to move forward in society.”


Gearheart, an American, who is also founder of Live Out Loud Charity for suicide prevention and awareness, made the statement at the recent Ministry of Information press briefing in Monrovia.

She noted that many young people in the country are faced with depression which, according to her, serves as a major challenge in Liberia that experienced a civil crisis and the Ebola Virus Disease outbreak.

She noted that no matter what mistakes young people made in the past, they can still make a difference and move forward in order to become who they want to be in the future.

Meanwhile, Gearheart is calling on parents to encourage their children that there is hope and that education is a key and a gateway to success.
