My name is Roberta Phillips Yawu, born November 12, 1980, in the West African nation of Liberia.  I am presently residing in Akron, OH.  As a mother of three wonderful boys, I just recently received my online Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Information Technology Management from Trident University International. I have a BSc Degree in Electronics Engineering (cum laude) and I am Cisco Certified.

My current employment is with Signet Jewelers, Inc. as a PC Support Analyst.  My previous jobs include a Registry Systems Analyst for Tetra Tech ARD (USAID Contractor) and an Information Technology Specialist for ArcelorMittal.

Before reaching this point in life, let me first give you a sense of where I come from and what I have gone through.  Life is not a walk in the park or the faint hearted.
