Eric Massaquoi, a burial team volunteer, faced a lot of stigmatization from his friends and community, because of the false beliefs people had about Ebola. When walking on the streets, he was booed and called names. Eric does not like it when people call him “burial boy”. He would like to leave the stigma and traumas of Ebola behind and move forward. He is now going through a reskilling education and after that he hopes to be able to work as a tailor. He would also love to become a musician, a rap artist. He says that he always sings when he sews. Sometimes he makes lyrics out of what he experienced during the Ebola epidemic.
