There are some people with who you get along from the second you meet. This was the case last with Rassidatou. Manon, one of the co-founder of Musana, told me about a girl she met at Berkeley. She said: “she is from Burkina, she is muslim and wearing the hijab like you, but there is more than that.” Indeed I realized when I met and listen to Rassidatou, what Manon was talking about. Rassidatou and I are both passionate about entrepreneurship and education. She was part of a panel that came to talk about social entrepreneurship, during a networking event for Musana Carts. In few minutes, she captured all our attention. I laughed while watching her talking with big gestures. She speaks and breathes her passion. For her, we heard for too long that the youth is the future of the country. Why shouldn’t the youth participate in the development today, right now? Why should we wait for tomorrow before accomplishing great things? Rassidatou is an alumni from the African Leadership Academy in South Africa. She is currently pursuing a Bachelor in Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley. Her dream is to help the Burkinabe youth to create ventures. With her project iwili, Rassidatou wants to allow every young person with a business idea to realize it, but also to gain a professional experience with entrepreneurs. Rassidatou blew our mind during that event and I hope you will understand why by watching this video.
