He walked 90 miles from Monrovia to Bong Mines to escape the violence, eventually landing in a refugee camp in the Ivory Coast. Biah eventually reunited with family in Rhode Island. Upon coming to Rhode Island, Biah passed the GED test and worked for minimum wage in a Centerdale textile factory while earning a degree from Rhode Island College.
