I come from Abobo, a ghetto neighborhood in Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa. My journey is ONE of adversity, perseverance, and success.
Cote d'Ivoire… A very beautiful country.
The land of golden beaches, the world's largest producer of Cocoa, home to the football legend Didier Drogba and host to the largest church in the world.
However, poverty, prostitution, and civil unrest are evident as a struggling economy.
“Why would you go to a country where you cannot even speak their language? Who does that?”
So, I arrived in the United States holding tightly to my suitcase in my right hand and my English dictionary is in my left hand.
I quickly seized the opportunity and this graveyard job allowed me to learn about AC/DC, resistors and transistors, different temperatures to test hardware, how to do audits, etc. I was the only female, but I did not care — I was able to take care of myself and also send money back to the Ivory Coast to take care of my family.
I served in several Advisory Board's roles driving STEM education to underserved communities.
From the ghettos of Cote d'Ivoire to today a SVP at T-Mobile - a fortune 100 company with $70B in revenues, responsible for leading a team of over 4000+ to design, build and operate a cutting-edge 5G network.
The sky is not the limit, because there is no limit!
