I met Ibrahima on the Fourth of July. He was playing soccer at our neighborhood park. As he sprinted all over the field, his exuberant smile and enthusiasm grabbed my son’s attention…I was completely taken too. After saying hello, he immediately agreed to be a part of The World in My Backyard.
His life began in a picturesque fishing village outside of Dakar, Senegal. Against his mother’s wishes, he pursued his passion for surfing, eventually helping start a surf camp on an island very near his village. He picked English from listening to and interaction with tourists coming through the camp.
More to come about Ibrahima soon.
