Bisila Bokoko is a Fascinating African Committed to excellence. She  broke barriers when she made history by becoming the only woman of African descent to serve as the Executive Director of the Spain–US Chamber of Commerce.

As the Executive Director of The bi-lateral private U.S. non-profit organization, Mrs. Bokoko  serves as the liaison between Spanish and U.S. business interests. Described as committed, passionate, sincere, and dynamic, Mrs. Bokoko has helped several businesses and governments build strategic partnerships that have helped to set the bedrock for sustainable global economic growth expansion using her own brand of energetic leadership, vision and spirit over the years.

Always reminded by the obstacles she faced as one of only a handful of African families living in Spain, and the joy and power of reading that kept her focused on her goals, Mrs. Bokoko founded the, Bisila Bokoko African Literacy Project, a foundation focused on leveraging resources and from all over the world and providing books and resources to children and families in Africa.

Mrs Bokoko is a trailblazer and has proved that being a woman should never be a disadvantage but rather an opportunity to prove that anything is possible.
