Prince was born during the end of the civil war in Liberia. He is a speaker for the Liberian National Representative Forum. Prince’s motivation comes from hearing of practices of female genital mutilation and child pregnancy in Liberia. He led a peaceful assembly calling on the Liberian National Police WACPS Grand Gedeh County detachment and the local government authority in Zwedru City, Grand Gedeh County, to arrest the journalists who violated Article 3 sub-section 18 of the Liberian Children’s Law 2011 on the protection of children’s privacy. The journalists posted pictures of the victim (who was raped by her step father) on social media. Due to his actions, the LNP/WACPS and the local government authority arrested the journalists and later forwarded the case to the court. He took part in a peaceful assembly calling on the 53rd national legislature of the lower house of representatives to not concord with the house of senate to amend the rape law from non-billable offence to billable offence. Prince established child advocacy clubs in schools to build children’s capacity through training and creating awareness in various slum communities. He reached 8620 children from 5 counties in the country. Prince joined the child broadcast and later participated in the Liberian Children Media Day Program (LCMD) to discuss about violence against children.
