Dr. Bello is the Founder and CEO/ED of the award winning More Too Life, Inc. an organization dedicated to ending human-trafficking by mentoring and educating those affected by it to rediscover themselves and their authentic identity while motivating others to take charge of changing systems and ideologies that fuel its root causes. She understands that the problems are amphibious and that in tackling the issues, a multi-faceted approach is vital. She also recognizes that social problems are interconnected and lean on one another. It is for this reason that she also founded the YOUTHIASM, an organization that seeks to develop a well-being youth that is enthusiastic about living a life in God. The platform would allow youths who have been pulled out of misery to rediscover their authentic identity and take charge of their emotions while rising above their misfortunes. The Legacy of Fatherhood Initiative is yet another link in the chain through which Dr. Bello hopes to connect all the dots for a wholesome community. Through the initiative, she hopes to raise males who would become men of honor that God has created them to be. As she puts it herself, “without men of honor we will fail.”
