My name is Mamadou and I originally come from Guinea. But now I'm happy living in Senegal, which wasn’t always the case. Twice I tried to emigrate to Europe, but both times without success.
It took me a long time to get going with my career. A difficult childhood and family conflict meant I didn’t have a very good start. Then I became ill and had to interrupt my studies. These were some very painful experiences that resulted in me suffering a mental crisis. I had reached a low point in my life, so I decided that something had to change.
