Meeting Aminata: A tale of resilience and success


#downmemorylane #gritandgrace #resilience #migrantlife #studentlife #foreigners #sisterhood

I met Aminata Ba in January 2015 when I moved into a students’ flat in Brussels shared by 3 of us. I can’t say exactly the mental space I was in, but I was back to taking antidepressants. when I even look at my Google photos, there is only one clear photo from January 2015 which is of me in school looking irritated someone took it to begin with. Ami and I took no picture together in the 4 months we lived together, life then was all about trying to stay alive and hustle to pay bills and eat even if once a day (I could care less tbt). Six years later, we meet, can sit down for hours over breakfast and update each other on our milestones after a walk  in the hood, and I returned home 4 hour later so happy for all. I listened to Ami with rapt attention, I could feel the joy in her too. I share this to inspire, motivate and encourage.

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.
