Andrena Sawyer is an author, business strategist, and diversity advocate whose background includes surviving the civil war in Sierra Leone. Her authenticity and battle-tested principles inspire audiences to embrace their past, own their present and maximize their future.
Originally from Freetown, Sierra Leone, she and her family moved to the United States when she was nine years old due to a civil war that left thousands dead and untold numbers maimed and displaced. She now credits her family’s move during the war for her interest in human triumph and perseverance. She has since actively worked to mobilize and empower others.
At age 15, she founded Triple “T” MAD (Teens Trying to Make a Difference), a community service organization for teens in central New Jersey. As a student at Howard University, she continued to cultivate her interest in community development by founding Rock, the MIC—an annual outreach for youth in the DC area. These experiences laid a firm foundation that continues to define her work.
Through her work, she has helped hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals move from ideas to purpose-driven work.
