Aminata my friend from my Brussels days

#studentreunion #downmemorylane my friend Aminata Ba I am so excited to be seeing you this morning after 6 years. I flashback to Brussels and the flat we shared with this boo from India awwwww. I remember a few evening where our dinner was milk and gists until yawning, when our last euros were gone and we didn’t know for sure when/where we’ll find more. I remember you teaching me how to write a project report due to your experience from the organization where you held your previous positions, I remember the grit you had to only forge ahead, even looking for opportunities out of Belgium while completing your school programs. Oh Ami, you warmed me so up when on hearing my voice you asked me ‘Marie sa va, sa va bien’? Yes you saw the depression rear its ugly head and maybe you didn’t know the term or just wanted to leave me alone in my room? I can’t wait for this day to break oooooo.  I have so many thank yous to say to you, and we sure do have lots of stories to share with each other.

Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.
