When I was a sophomore at Harvard College studying Applied Maths, I had a realization: I am in love with humanity! But I didn't feel that I understood people or myself. Nor did I feel that my spiritual self was welcomed there. It didn't help that I felt completely lost, like I was a round hole among the square pegs. I didn't know it then, but this was a sure sign of clinical depression and anxiety!
Later, I learnt that my experience isn't unique. The World Bank estimates that 100 million Africans suffer from clinical depression. In low-income countries like Senegal, as much as 85% of the population suffers from mental illness without receiving support.
Luckily, I had angel friends who showed me understanding and compassion. Someone even stirred me towards Social Entrepreneurship 159, an i-lab class about innovating and changing the world. That class won my undivided attention and bright eyes!

“You have to meet Fatou! My friend Luciana Resnik had a good eye and I trusted her judgment a lot. So I arranged to meet with Fatou, of whom I had no information other than her name. We met for coffee in Palermo, Buenos Aires, in front of the Church of Guadalupe.
It was a sunny morning and I arrived early at the café. A few minutes later I see a young woman enter with one of those impressive smiles and you can't help but respond with another smile. I saw a woman with violet braids, tall, determined and kind.
Not many minutes passed between the usual greetings and the chat in which we already felt very comfortable, like two friends who had a lot in common. To make a long story short, this young woman from Senegal who was working for technology companies in Argentina was interested in my MBA thesis on the relationship between happiness and productivity at work. After our meeting, she read it, gave me feedback like no one had ever given me before., and shortly after, we were giving workshops in various companies, establishing a professional bond and friendship like few times in my almost 60 years of life.
Fatou is direct, intelligent in her assessments, focused, and her feedback always brings value. Fatou thinks a lot and then speaks. That's a great virtue of hers. In the course of our partnership, Fatou contributed her methodology: she knew how to put together the structure so that the workshop was orderly and productive. I want to dedicate a separate paragraph to her charisma with people. Everyone loved Fatou as soon as she entered the room.
When Fatou left Argentina, I felt it very much. However, we are still connected, and I have no doubt that soon some project will unite us again. I hope that happens soon!”
