Henry attempted to travel legally to Ukraine but was denied visa due to incomplete documentation. He was offered another opportunity to travel to Spain by another agent but was duped in Mali. He eventually decided to return due to insufficient resources to continue his trip.
Henry attended the Boys High School in Kissy, Freetown where he was able to reach high school. Henry is a volunteer camera operator at a local music studio and a music artist. He also does photography and shoot videos. His goal is to become a successful professional musician and would also like to empower other young people to become musicians. Henry believes in giving back to society. He wants to be respected the way he respects others.

Returned migrants play a central role as Volunteers in the development, planning and implementation of the Migrants as Messengers campaign.

Through their stories, the learnings from their migratory experiences and their creativity, MaM Volunteers are the principal authors and actors of the campaign. From 2019-2022, a community of more than 300 volunteers across 7 countries will develop and grow. This community will also have access to diversified training and capacity-building opportunities and be invited to regular activities to support the development of an organic and sustainable community. Female engagement plays an important role within the MaM Volunteer community as they will take the lead in shaping women-to-women dialogue sessions and engaging female audiences more generally.
