Cornelius Keagon

Monrovia, Liberia


Cornelius Tuayan Keagon (born 6 July 1996) is a Liberian philanthropist, expressionist artist, blogger, entrepreneur, motivational speaker and actor known for starring in Johnny Mad Dog, Murder In The Cassava Patch, and Son Of None. Born just at the end of the brutal First Liberian Civil War, Keagon began advocating for world peace and human rights from his early childhood. Due to the Second Liberian Civil War which took place between 1999 up to 2003, Keagon's early childhood was filled with violence. His education was disrupted during the Liberian crisis. In 2004, he returned to Monrovia and completed his high school education. He later earned a degree in Business Administration from the Stella Maris Polytechnic University in Monrovia. In July 2019, Keagon founded his humanitarian organization Arts & Positivity. The organization was initially created to serve Nimba County only, but Keagon later changed its service to cover all of Liberia. The organization officially began distributing food and clothing to orphanages in August 2019. In 2021, Arts & Positivity received the highest humanitarian award from the government of Liberia.
