๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹Hi Everyone, ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹

Have you already met with Peggye? She is a mission driven, brilliant ๐ŸŒ  and humble woman ๐Ÿ‘ฉ living in Paris ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท. Impressive story ๐Ÿ“! Peggye was born in a small village ๐Ÿ  of 34k inhabitants in the northern part of the Madagascar ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฌ where 72% of the population live with less that $1 /day ๐Ÿ’ฐ. During colonialism, her grandfather๐Ÿ‘ด who was a farmer ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŒพ, had noticed that the common denominator of wealthy people was education ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ. With his wife, they tighten their belt all their life to send their 8 children to University๐ŸŽ“. Unlike most other kids ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ in her village, Peggyeโ€™s family always supported her psychologically and financially ๐Ÿ’ฐ to succeed at school even if it was not always easy. However, after her first year in law school ๐Ÿ“”, almost every university shut down due to an 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 ๐ŸŒ from her family ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ. Among tens of thousands of applicants, she received the Boutmy scholarship to join the prestigious school of Science Po in Paris ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท. With her degree in the pocket, she could have applied to best in class law firms with high paid salaries ๐Ÿ’ฐ but it was not her mission. She decided to join a mission driven start up ๐Ÿš€ 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 โ™ฟ people with her family.

Her mission is to give a chance to every disadvantaged children ๐Ÿ‘ฆ and to convince them that they can also realize their dreams ๐Ÿš€๐Ÿš€! She has more than a mission. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸŒ  Today, she is a role model for the overall community of Antalaha!๐ŸŒ ๐ŸŒ
