Ndeye Boury Silla, Youth Activist

Bou is one of our community’s outstanding youth. The daughter of Senegalese immigrants, she raised more than $900 to purchase school supplies for children in her parent’s native country. She also helped start a book club with other children of African immigrants and is an overall leader in her family and community. Bou has learned that “the smallest thing can make the biggest difference.” She hopes to become an obstetrician and work internationally.
