I lived in Nigeria for my entire childhood. When I came to the United States, my eyes were opened as to how unaware other countries were to the overwhelming economic and cultural challenges of Africa.  It was then I knew I was meant to dedicate my life to bringing a voice to those still in the shadows and to enlighten those totally unaware of the atrocities women and children in Africa endure.

Hope Masters is President and CEO of the Leon H. Sullivan Foundation. Hope has dedicated her life to supporting the work of her father, Rev. Leon H. Sullivan, and to carrying on his spirit and legacy after his passing.
 
At the request of her father, after completing her studies in law at Temple University in 1989, Hope applied her legal training to developing and supporting programs within OIC America and IFESH, two of the organizations that her father established. She played a central role in the planning for the Leon H. Sullivan Summit I and supported the development of the Global Sullivan Principle of Social Responsibility in the early 1990s. After her father's passing in 2001, with the support of Ambassador Andrew Young, Hope established the Sullivan Foundation, to which she refers as "the embodiment of a daughter's love."
