I am a young political activist passionate about human rights and poverty reduction strategies. My passion for policymaking sparked when I was elected as the first international student president of the student government at Quest University. During my tenure, I spearheaded several advocacy initiatives and institutional reforms such as implementing a capacity development scholarship program for low-income students, organizing the University’s first Power, Race, and Privilege Symposium, and developing policy briefs on students' sexual safety. Following my passion for inclusive policies, I conducted an award-winning research study, for my honor thesis, assessing the ways neoliberal policies have shaped the working conditions of women in informal fishing communities in Senegal. I am very excited to join BSG in order to contribute towards building a more inclusive and just society.
I hold a bachelor degree in arts and sciences from Quest University and I am an African Leadership Academy alumna.
