My name is Halimatou Jallow, an Economics major at The University of The Gambia. I graduated from high school in 2013 but due to financial complication I couldn’t do much since. Thanks to A for A all of that is about to change
To me, it was like I will never complete my university studies. I sat for two semesters without attending lectures and was at home with helplessness. Thanks to A for A, a less privilege student like me will attend university studies and shall take lectures rigorously.
