My name is Alie Hassan Nasralla (DJ NAZER) I am the vice president of Sierra Leone Nationals Association of Manitoba (SALNAM). I believe that anything we do in a community requires us to be familiar with our people, our issues, and our history, a good way to accomplish this was what led me to volunteered for the Sierra Leone community in Winnipeg in various capacities subsequently few years of my arrival to Canada 10 years ago. I began my volunteer tasks as a regular community member, took on the leadership of the cultural wing of the organization for 2 consecutive folklorama sessions training and organizing the dance troupe to participate at the African Pavilion.

My leadership in organizing and coordinating the cultural activities over the years has enabled our dance troupe youths to put up outstanding performances at folklorama and other cultural events and also enhanced their knowledge of Sierra Leone’s diverse culture. I have offered my musical system in support of our fundraising activities many times and I have being donating part of the proceeds of my RED N’ WHITE social for the last four years. 

As current vice the long-term history of this community is very important to me and I will work very hard to preserve it. I am proud of our elders who initiated this organization as a community in this city, Winnipeg. Now we can afford valuable information about factions within the community and how to mend it, important issues, past and current relationships among key people and groups many of the factors that can trip up our effort of reconciliation. 

I have noticed that many aspects of our country’s social structures are integrated into our relationships here in Winnipeg and there are also the questions of how people in our community relate to one another on a daily basis, how problems are (or aren't) resolved, who socializes or does business with whom, etc. As your vice I will work with my President to address these core issues. Please let’s work together as one people!
