KHADIDIATOU NIASS FALL

KhadijaKhadija was one of nine children born to her family in Dakar, Senegal.  She praises her hard-working parents for being heroes and caretakers in her youth.  However, when she was a young adult, she was shocked to learn that she was to marry a stranger in an arranged marriage.  She ultimately grew to love and feel fortunate for her marriage to a wonderful man, but the years of struggle between her parents and Khadija forever changed her. 

She wants to become a social worker in order to help new generations not endure the same situation and be able to fight for their rights.  In order to reach this goal, she enrolled in the Bridge program to boost her skills for college.  Her teachers noted a positive, infectious energy and willingness to support and assist her classmates.  The Friends of the CLC is happy to support Ms. Fall’s journey toward changing lives as a social worker with a scholarship.
