He is known for teaching himself engineering at the age of 13 and building his own radio station in Sierra Leone, where he plays music and broadcasts news under the name “DJ Focus”. He was one of the finalists in GMin’s Innovate Salone idea competition, in which Doe built a generator from scrap metals.
