πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹Hi Everyone, πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

Have you already met with Peggye? She is a mission driven, brilliant 🌠 and humble woman πŸ‘© living in Paris πŸ‡«πŸ‡·. Impressive story πŸ“! Peggye was born in a small village 🏠 of 34k inhabitants in the northern part of the Madagascar πŸ‡²πŸ‡¬ where 72% of the population live with less that $1 /day πŸ’°. During colonialism, her grandfatherπŸ‘΄ who was a farmer πŸ‘¨β€πŸŒΎ, had noticed that the common denominator of wealthy people was education πŸ‘¨β€πŸ«. With his wife, they tighten their belt all their life to send their 8 children to UniversityπŸŽ“. Unlike most other kids πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¦β€πŸ‘¦ in her village, Peggye’s family always supported her psychologically and financially πŸ’° to succeed at school even if it was not always easy. However, after her first year in law school πŸ“”, almost every university shut down due to anΒ attempt coup to take over the existing government. She could have given up but she did not. At 19 years old, she decided to apply abroad thousands of kilometers 🌍 from her family πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦. Among tens of thousands of applicants, she received the Boutmy scholarship to join the prestigious school of Science Po in Paris πŸ‡«πŸ‡·. With her degree in the pocket, she could have applied to best in class law firms with high paid salaries πŸ’° but it was not her mission. She decided to join a mission driven start up πŸš€ called EPIC foundation which aims at fighting against social inequalities globally. In parallel, she is also very active in the community of Antalaha with the opening of a school for handicapped β™Ώ people with her family.

Her mission is to give a chance to every disadvantaged children πŸ‘¦ and to convince them that they can also realize their dreams πŸš€πŸš€! She has more than a mission. πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸŒ  Today, she is a role model for the overall community of Antalaha!🌠🌠
