Smart Solutions From Africa: Notre Dame- Zeinabou

Over the past 6 weeks I have taken part in a Professional Development Program, Mandela Washington Fellowship by the United States Government @Notre Dame University, and I have gotten to meet 24 fabulous young people from 20 Countries in Africa whom I am proud to have meet,  because they all are doing something for Africa and offering smart solutions  to problems and opportunities in their countries, before I arrived for the program I got a chance to view their profiles and I was intimidated! These guys looked so brilliant I didn’t think I could share a room with them, until I met them, one by one…Gosh they were the funniest most amazing young Africans I have ever met.
 I’d like to share My personal experience with each of them and of course their amazing Initiative in solutions for Africa; Smart Solutions for Africa!
Allow me to share a story for each of them along with their smart solution. 

Zeinebou Abdeljelil is an entrepreneur and economic development expert from Mauritania who specializes in information and communications technology (ICT), financial literacy, and community development.She Founded Fin2Prod who provide market services, technical assistance, agriculture equipment and seeds and pesticides to farmers in the rural areas.


  a little Story, Zeinabou arrived pretty late for the fellowship because she had to spend the night in Paris because airport check ins made her miss her flight. Her flight from Mauritania to Chicago took so long when she arrived all I could do was laugh...'I know we're from Africa but did they make you Swim? we've been waiting for you for 3 days'...we had a laugh about it... Oh, and I also practise all my french on Zeinabou, Omelette-du fromage
