I received my Master’s degree in African Literature and two certificates (certificate in American Literature and a certificate in British literature) from Universite Cheikh Anta Diop Dakar (Senegal). I spent several years teaching French and English as applicable to Senegal students and workers from English speaking countries. In 2009, I came to the United States as graduate teaching assistant of beginning and intermediate French at Kansas State University. While a student, I was awarded the Philippe Dehon Graduate Scholarship of the French section and completed my Master’s degree in French and Francophone Literature in 2012. Since completing my graduate degree,I have spent time mentoring students of French studies and working on my research interests: French and Francophone Literature with special emphasis on the plight of women in male-dominated societies.I speak French, English, Mandinka, Wolof and Balante.
