“Prête à être une leader africain !” is locked	 Prête à être une leader africain !

I am now ready to be an African leader.

If I had to choose one word to summarise my first year at ALU, it would be: GROWTH.

Starting my university life at ALU after 3 years of high school has been a real challenge, both in my personal and study life. As a single mother, I had to find the perfect balance between my responsibilities as a parent and managing my time to learn.
Looking back, I have to say I am proud of what I have accomplished in only one year.

This very experience started off the best way, I cannot thank for the ALC staff and the upper years for the warmest welcome & support. Not to mention Novaterra who helped me achieve my professional project.

Life at ALU is not only about being in a classroom and submitting assignments. The academic curriculum is crafted in such a way that you develop your personal skills to be ready for the real life and become a leader. I’ve learnt to be empathic to be able to carry out a group project, I also needed to be critical about my own work to always improve my work and get better grades. These skills have been very useful during my internship at Go Meta as an administrative assistant.

But it is not only about grades and studies, ALC caters for your professional life. We often lunch with professionals to grow our network but also share insights of how what we learned at ALU is the most valuable asset for the real work life experience.

I have to say, I never got bored. There is always something to do at the campus, we have organised events, helped the local community and participate in sports & academic competitions.

I am now ready to be an African leader.
