Mamadou Balde is an ambitious 4th-year at UT Austin who recently collaborated with an amazing team to collect a series of inspirational stories in hopes that it would connect and empathize with others’ life story. The purpose of MamBa Inspire is to help minority students from high school and college to strive for academic success, navigate through the social stigma around them, increase the self-confidence and face challenges with rigor plus alacrity. Mamadou plans to pursue medical school. You can follow his profile on LinkedIn as well.
