Mariak Chuor “MC”

Mariak is the president and founder of Rial Baai.  Mariak became a LOST BOY at age seven after his village was destroyed and family scattered during one of the midnight raids that ravaged so much of South Sudan during the second civil war. He joined the Sudanese People Liberation Army/Movement (SPLA/M) and was a child soldier for seven years. Encouraged by elders to go seek education, he came to the USA as a refugee and settled in Richmond, VA in 2000. Through hard work and faith that “with God all things are possible”, he completed grades 4 through 12 in four years, and then went on to earn a college degree in computer electronic engineering. He has published two books, “Rebuilding What Had Been Destroyed” and “South Sudan Long Journey to Freedom”, and was featured in the 2002-chronicled documentary “The Lost Boys Film” by Megan Mylan. In addition to Rial Baai, he works as a writer, mentor and motivational speaker.  Mariak attended grid tied and off-grid solar training in the United States and worked with one of the top solar companies there.
