As the second year of Our Sisters Lead workshops are underway, we have an exciting announcement from an alumna of last year’s program: Ndeye Fatma was crowned Miss Senegal!
Ndeye Fatma participated in WGEP’s leadership training workshops on public speaking, advocacy, and conflict resolution as a high school student in Sokone in 2019. Ndeye Fatma was crowned Miss Senegal in part for her inspiring speech and ability to speak clearly in front of the Miss Senegal audience-- crucial skills taught in Our Sisters Lead. Now, she’ll represent Senegal at Miss Universe, and advocate for social causes related to children across the country!
We are proud of Ndeye Fatma’s accomplishments, and wish her the best of luck as she continues to learn and grow as a changemaker in her community, and on a world stage.
Stay tuned for more success stories of this year’s Our Sisters Lead program, where 239 new emerging leaders are designing community development projects on the issues that matter most to them.
