I was born and raised in Togo and moved to the US at 14. I identify as a first-gen student, a big sister, a friend, a daughter. I consider myself a global citizen and believe everyone, regardless of background, deserves to experience life in all its beauty. I’m passionate about youth education, women’s rights, sexual liberation, and many other things. In my Me Time, I’m either taking care of my plants, chatting with my sisters or friends, on Netflix, listening to Afrobeat or Celine Dion, or I’m riding my bike across NYC.
