She recently finished high school at John Pickering Comprehensive and set to continue at the University of The Gambia in January.
Ms Kuyateh has been an inspiration for her community and the entire region.
“I want people to really, really understand what I’m trying to put across. And I’m also trying to sensitize and create awareness about people themselves and their culture”
She believes that while we embrace western lifestyle and modernity, it is cardinal for us to preserve our cultures because they help us stay true to who we really are.
