Alya Koumbassa

I was born in Guinea and grew up in Conakry. I am the only person in my family to receive a formal education and graduate with my high school diploma. I served as the first program director and tutor for Guinea Kids Education fund from 2007-2009. I am so happy that GKEF exists to provide opportunities to so many children in my community. I want every child to have the same opportunities I had.

I was sad to leave my home and my work in Guinea when I came to the United States in 2009, but I am happy to be able to continue to give back to my community by serving as a board member for GKEF. As a board member from Guinea, I also contribute Guinean cultural insight and perspective to our decision making processes.
