She is a third year gender and development student at the University of The Gambia working with Fawegam.

Her words: “I have always been passionate about promoting gender equity and equality which is why I decided to pursue a degree course at the university as a way and means of preparation for that important task. I believe achieving greater gender equity and equality will go a long way in creating a better society and enhancing women’s contribution to development. My ambition is to work in the UN House to serve the global body in its efforts to create a better world. My mum is my role model and her encouragements and guidance keep me going and raring to do more for my country and humanity at large”.

The 22-year-old graduate of SoS Herman Gmeiner high school likes spending her free time on her twin hobbies of cooking and reading.
