My name is Gayecesor “Cesor” Sleh, a native of Liberia, West Africa, and I came to the United States in 2004. After initially living in Chicago and Utah, I relocated to Rock Hill as I was attracted to South Carolina’s weather. I have a few family members in various parts of the United States. I have 3 children, two boys and one girl, who currently live in Utah at the moment and will be moving to live with me upon the completion of my home.
I found out about Habitat through a friend who at the time was becoming a Habitat home buyer. I decided to reach out to Habitat for Humanity of York County to begin this journey. At the first meeting, I met a lot of people and they were giving their testimonies and it made me very interested. At the time, I knew nothing about house buying or construction, but the Habitat program has taught me more than I could ever imagine. Habitat staff helped me to get the necessary information to guide me on this new journey.
Regarding my Habitat experience, they are very good people, they talk to you freely, are very open and they help you. I felt as if it was time to become a homeowner so that I could have my own space for my family as I currently live in a house with roommates. When my home is complete, my children will come to live with me. I will get to be stable and I will get to be a dad.
