Hi, my name is Fallou Ndiaye. I am originally from Senegal, West Africa. I currently live in Garden City, Kansas. My story of coming to the United States began when I worked at the Embassy in Senegal because Senegal is the long ally of the United States. The last three Presidents visited Senegal, so when I work there, they welcome you and greet you in a respectful way and give me visa to get my chance to come here in the United States.
When I came here, I learned that the opportunities are open to everyone – to everyone who wants to move up, they give you a chance to do it. So, every place since then, I work more than a decade. I was looking for a job and they give me that job, the same job they provide to everyone. So, even if I don’t speak the language at that time very clearly to them, they help me. They help me and guide me and train me as they train American people to do the job like everybody.
