I joined Standard Chartered Bank almost six years ago as an Investigator in the Financial Counselling Associate of America and am currently a Team Lead in the Financial Crimes Compliance Americas Unit in Newark, NJ.
I absolutely love my job, because I not only learn something new every day, I get to do “purposeful” work in protecting the safety and soundness of the Bank and the global financial infrastructure.
As a double graduate of Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Saint Augustine’s University (SAU) and North Carolina Central University School of Law (NCCU Law), Black History Month has always been an exciting time for me. Not only is Black history woven into the fabric of American History, it is also a source of pride to witness the growth and advancement of humankind.
When I studied law in South Africa and visited Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was held captive for the majority of his twenty-seven year imprisonment and emerged a forgiving, kinder, gentler person, I realized that life is never as bad as it was, or as it could be, if we all do our part to stand up for what is right and what is kind.
