Young and brave: Mariama Jammeh wants to become the first female UN Secretary General!

She is the most intelligent student at Methodist Academy (Junior School). Mariama Jammeh wants to become the first female United Nations Secretary General, and aspires to use the position to bring peace in the world.

“There are lots of crises in the world, and I want to solve them through dialogue,” she told What’s On-Gambia when we visited her school on Tuesday.

Mariama, who lives in Brusubi, scored ‘A’ in ten subjects in her school’s first term exams. She is currently in Grade 8.

She said: “I want to come out first in the Gambia Basic Educational Certificate Exams GABECE.”

The 14-year-old counts her mum among her role models and said she admires and respects her greatly.

“My mum helps me a lot, she always corrects me.”

Mariama, who is a budding gender activist, wants more young girls to aspire to be leaders in the future.

“Girls should be serious. They should focus on their education,” she said.

The Methodist star student is a huge fan of the famous British boy band, One Direction. According to her, Zayn Malik is her favorite among the boys.

“Mariama is an outstanding student. She performs extremely well in all her exams,” said the Vice Principle of Methodist Academy.
