Sia Finoh was born in Sierra Leone, West Africa, to Ahmed Yomba Finoh and Alice Isatu M'brewa. After her mother passed away at a very young age, she lived with her uncle, Dr. Temba Yarjah, and his wife, Sia Mary Sam Sumana, who raised her.  

Her father sought refuge in the United States of America, a land of opportunities and possibilities, from the horrific civil war in Sierra Leone.

With faith, dedication, and conviction, Sia and her father overcame their many challenges. Since she was thirteen years old, Sia has lived in Prince George County, Maryland.


Sia's father worked tirelessly to provide for his family. Her father was also a generous man who supported his community. He paid tuition for his neighbors' children and friends. He helped anybody, young and adult, who wanted to attend school and further their education, by whichever means possible. 

Sia became determined to follow in his father's footsteps, watching him. She began to gain a sense of aspiration, ambition, and compassion to offer and provide emotional, social, economic, and entrepreneurial support to people from different backgrounds, determined to make a difference in her community. 



Sia is a product of Prince George's County Public School System. She attended North Western High School and later transferred to High Point High School, where she graduated with merit. 

In 2003, Sia started college at Prince George's Community College. A couple of years later, she transferred to the University of Maryland, College Park. As a single mother of two children, Sia decided to transfer to the University of Maryland (University College), where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Political Science in 2010.


Sia's love affairs with American politics started in the early 90s when she wrote a letter to the then Presidential candidate, Bill Clinton, expressing her support for his candidacy. After Bill Clinton won his first presidential election, he replied to her, thanking Sia for her support toward the nation. To her astonishment, in her wildest imagination, she never thought a sitting President would send a written reply to regular citizens, let alone a child of her age. 

That experience became a revelation and pivotal point in her life. It inspired her for community development and empowerment, activism for women's rightschildren's rightsequalitysocial justicesocial reform, and economic empowerment. 


While working for former Maryland State Senator Nathaniel Exum, Sia's legislative experience included communicating and interacting with lawmakers, hands-on experience in research, and writing and testifying on house bills.  

Also, she corresponded to the constituents in her district and was responsible for planning the Student Legislative Week, which often happened every legislative session. 


As mental health issues continue to rise among men and women in the U.S. and around the globe, Sia is determined to work with stakeholders to help reduce the intensity of this crisis by addressing some of the social and economic issues affecting our community. She believes that to think and work effectively and productively, we must be in a healthy state of mind and be stress-free. 


In 2013, Sia decided to further her professional education by attending the American University School of International Service in Washington, DC. Sia is also a proud member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Prince George's Chapter, Women Global Empowerment, Education of Hope, Girls Hope, and No Child Left Behind. 

In addition, Sia sees human and women's rights awareness as a societal concern. As a result, she founded the Education for Africans, a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization, giving her an extensive outlook on human rights and women's rights, impacting communities worldwide.


As a devoted mother of three, Sia's vision, passion for public service, and experience position her to bring a meaningful change to Prince George's County. Her vision is to make a difference and create a blueprint for the betterment of the next generation. 

Sia Finoh will serve her constituent with the highest dignity, honesty, and integrity. 

Together, we move. Together, we will win...
