Mariama Ceesay is in her fourth year at the University of The Gambia medical school. Her parents lived in Salikenni but moved to the Banjul area before she was born, and she grew up there. She came to our attention when she was in eleventh grade, as a promising student who would be a role model for our younger girls. We paid for her first year in medical school. Then she was awarded a Gambian government scholarship for the remainder of the seven-year medical program. She is a member of the SSF board in The Gambia, one of two students in charge of working with our female students. She has traveled to Salikenni for SSF to tutor our students there.
