When I arrived to this country, it was like a door had opened and rushed me in. I was blessed with an eye to see all the opportunities that exist here for women. I have been able to put myself through school and open two hair salons in New York City. I employ eight women from my community, all of who have lived through similar fate. I am also the founder and president of the Association of African Women. My goal is to bring other NY-based African women together, provide opportunities so that we may all grow together.
It is clear. I have a mission. And one day, I will bring that mission back to Burkina Faso. I will travel village to village if I have to and I will share the knowledge and the power I have been blessed with.
