Sylvia Blyden has been described as the ‘Iron Lady’ of Sierra Leone; being the fearless to challenge social issues affecting the people of Sierra Leone. However, news making the rounds seems destroying the image of the first and only recognized female publisher of a reputable media house (Awareness Times Newspaper) Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden for obvious reasons.
People have questioned the academic achievements of Dr. Sylvia Blyden. Now, this is the revelation they never knew. Dr. Blyden has an MBBS which qualifies her as a medical doctor and after graduation requires her to use the ‘Dr’ title until death. Sylvia is a proud owner of two medical degrees; Bachelor degree in Basic Medical Sciences (1993) and the MBBS (1996). All these documents were presented to the committee on appointment and public service.
Dr. Blyden is evidently among the few appointees that will perform above expectation. If one would follow the life trajectory of Sylvia Blyden, you would know has always been a success.
