Khadija Ndiaye

By Tomorrow’s Leaders NYC mentor Fatoumata Diakite, sharing interview of mother Fanta Kouyate and Khadija Ndiaye (what makes this interview interesting is that myself and the family are both from the country of Mali, which is located in West Africa). I hope this interview can inspire others.

  • Question for the child (Khadija): How do you feel your mother has affected your life socially, emotionally, and academically?

Socially:  My mom has affected my life by teaching me to treat people with respect and to love everybody. To treat others the way you want to be treated. She taught me to not be violent and to help others. She also taught me to be patient with others.

Emotionally: She tells me to cheer other people up. To be the person’s right hand. My mom makes me extremely happy. She makes me laugh all the time. She also tells me to believe in God.
