Kat Graham for Empower54
Actress, Musician, Producer and Philanthropist Katerina "Kat" Graham is a well known music artist, actress and producer, best known for her starring role in the hit TV show “The Vampire Diaries.” Born in Geneva, Switzerland, Kat speaks English, Spanish, French and Hebrew – and is the daughter of a Liberian father and a Russian Jewish mother.
Ms. Graham was recently named International Goodwill Ambassador for Empower54. She brings her considerable profile and resources to this effective N.G.O. to raise awareness around the plight of Internally Displaced Peoples (I.D.P.s) and refugees in the West African country of Nigeria.
After spending three years working on the cause of refugees in the Middle East and Central America, Ms. Graham is now devoting the entire focus of her humanitarian efforts to Empower 54 to help raise the profile of the organization and the refugees in Africa. With millions of men, women and children suffering at the hands of Africa’s worst terrorist organization, Boko Haram, Empower54 is actively providing humanitarian rehabilitation directly to malnourished children, displaced families and refugees through health, empowerment and education programs. It is precisely this vital work that Ms. Graham is looking to participate in and highlight for so many people suffering in Nigeria and throughout western Africa.
