My journey to IUGB started in Fall 2016 when I was in the University Preparatory Program (UPP). I completed the program successfully and then began the university’s courses.I have a Vocational Training Certificate in Accounting, Finance and Business management. In 2014, I worked for Randgold Resources in several departments, namely the supply chain, finance and engineering departments. I was fortunate to get a scholarship from this firm and go back to school. I would like to take this opportunity to express my profound gratitude to the CEO of this company for the unbelievable kindness and tremendous support.

I chose the International University of Grand- Bassam (IUGB) because of its uniqueness (American-style University in a Francophone environment). I wanted to improve my skills, especially in English to face the challenges of the competitive world in which we live. I am majoring in Bachelor of Business Administration, with a concentration in Finance and Management. I am a member of the business, speech and health clubs.

I am also involved in community service because it is part of my personality. I believe that no one can or should be happy alone. For me, happiness is love and charity. One day, we will die and leave everything we have such as our car, house, money and so on. What we will go with is the feeling we had when we helped and put a smile on the faces of those who were suffering. As such, with my friends of the business club, we went to Don Orione in Bonoua and organized a Christmas party for sick children. Also, with other friends, we raised funds and went to the hospital to give gifts to mothers and newborn babies. Finally, we went to the mosque of Grand-Bassam to give gifts.
