Ismaila is a Gambian currently studying in United States. At Berea College in Kentucky, he is pursuing his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, while doing a minor in Peace and Social Justice and Philosophy. He is an active community builder with a drive to managing and minimizing conflicts and he says, “My purpose in life is to be instrumental in realizing as much peace and justice as possible. My intention is to go to law school and to use my law degree to work as an advocate by giving voice to the overwhelmingly voiceless migrants.” He hopes to use the CSP experience to further this goal. He likes camping, fishing, hiking, drumming, cooking, gardening and almost anything outdoors.
