Campus: UNC
Hometown: Dakar, Senegal
High School: African Leadership Academy

I came from a very conservative family where girls’ education is not much considered as it should be. As a girl who faced this challenge and who got the chance to overcome it, I believe to be a change- maker for my community. My goal is not only to help some Senegalese girls to go to school but also, to satisfy all the conditions that they need in order to get a good education which would help them to design their future.

What drew you to the Robertson Program?

Coming to African Leadership Academy has helped me to shape my future goals throughout my Entrepreneurial and Leadership class. Thanks to the Robertson Program, I am eager to continue to learn more about Leadership which is fundamental to achieve my goals. With the Robertson Program, I am opportune not to only unpack more this notion of Leadership but also to meet new people and learn about their leadership and their goals as well.
