My name is Abdoulaye. I'm 27 years old and I come from Vélingara, which is a town in the south of Senegal. I recently received my school leaving certificate. Vélingara doesn’t have a university, so I have enrolled in an online law course starting next semester.
Last year, the youth association in my town informed me that the Senegalese-German Centre for Jobs, Migration and Reintegration (CSAEM) was offering a training course in Vélingara on the subject of entrepreneurship. I took part in it, along with 20 other young people. After that, I attended another course in screen printing arranged by our regional youth committee. These two training courses gave me the urge to design something of my own. I started with a logo inspired by the name of my favourite rap group “fuk n kuk”. Doing this made me really happy. I then had the logo printed on T-shirts, jumpers, trousers and jackets.
