Meet The Receptionist At Techfrica Cooperate Office

‘’It turned out at my new office where I got a job, that they don’t watch or pay attention to the color of my skin or tend to discriminate me. When I was advised by our president of the Sierra Leone Association of Persons With Albinism to apply, I had thought of the discrimination I was going to face due to the color of my skin, but the founder and the CEO of the company, and my colleagues turned out to pay more attention to what I can deliver to that of the color of my skin.”
