Music and cinematography from former Liberian refugee

Ralph Weah is 19-years old from Worcester, MA. When he was young, his family moved to the U.S. to flee civil war in Liberia. Weah lived in a refugee camp in Buduburam for 8 years of his life before resettling in the United States, but his passion for cinematography and music led him to create his company SteadyWave Productions. He's also working with YouthGROW, a youth employment program in Worcester. “It’s terrible when people say we’re looking for a certain age or demographic, but we want you to have experience,” Weah said. “I think there should be a focus on giving youth a chance when they apply for those jobs, and not letting age be a big factor. It doesn’t always correlate with experience and maturity.“
