The Story began on June 21, 1951, for Sheku Tejan Koroma, also known as Uncle TJ and Sheku to many. Sheku was raised in Kenema,Sierra Leone by his uncle Alhaji Tarawally. In his early teens,
he moved to Freetown for better opportunities. While in Freetown, he resided with his late Uncle and late Aunt, Ibrahim Sorie Muray Koroma and Haja Jonta Koroma, respectively. After completing
his studies, Sheku earned a scholarship to study in the United States.

In 1974, Sheku traveled to the United States to pursue his education, were he went on to achieve his B.S.C in Accounting from Strayer University in 1977. Sheku then continued to further his education at the University of the District Columbia in 1983 by earning his Master’s in Business Administration. In 1975 Sheku married the Love of his Life, Aminata Bundu. Sheku and Aminata have been married for 45 years. During their journey together they raised four sons: Mohamed, Tejan Jr, Gibril, and Abraham.
