Gambian with courage: This is Kebba Jammeh, the young Gambian who worked as a lebayress (labourer) to pay for his university education. He became one of the most successful students at the University of The Gambia (UTG).Â
Kebba is smart, curious, self-discipline and loves to learn.Â
Education has always been an important part of his life. After obtaining his Bachelorâ€™s Degree, he was offered a job as a Graduate Assistant by UTG.Â
Kebba is the country representative for One Sight International, an American organization that aims to provide the gift of sight to Gambians and fight against preventable blindness.Â
The former UTG student is currently doing his Masterâ€™s in Economics in Italy. He believes that education gives people an understanding of what they can do for themselves and their societies. Thumbs up for Kebba!
