Activist and Published Poet
Originally from the Bronx, New York, Fatimata now lives in Easton, PA as a first year student attending Lafayette College. Her activism journey began in 2015 at her boarding school in Northern, New Hampshire. She noticed that there was a missing puzzle piece in the conversation revolving around equity and education. She began to lead discussions at her school about diversity and inclusion. She later became a teen advisor to the United Nations Foundation Girl Up and later began to advocate for gender equality around the globe. Fatimata scaled up her work and later became a published poet to the book Perfectly Imperfect. Featured in Pix 11, News 12 the Bronx, The Today Show among many others she continues to fight for a more equitable and just world.
