WE ARE: A Nation of Immigrants - New Haven 2018
New Haven Green A4
Current occupation: Hairdresser
Arrival in the US: N/A
Reason for migration: To obtain a better life for myself.
Commentary: I graduated from college in Senegal and got my degree in banking. I was working for a bank but got the opportunity to come to the United States to make a better life for myself. I had to make a living once I got here so I learned how to do hair and I love doing it. And I help a lot of people. Sometimes kids don’t have enough money to get their hair done so I do it for them for free. I love to do that. I’m really happy being here.
