———————————————

The Winner of Miss Sierra Leon  2014

My name is Fatmata Marah. I was born on July 15th 1992 in the most beautiful place on earth,

Sierra Leon, a place I call paradise. In June of 2006 I gained the privileged opportunity of coming to the United States. My uncle, someone who I call my hero, has been the one to accommodate my stay.

OUR HONOREE, Miss FAVOR MARAH , The Winner of SIERRA LEON 2014

Coming to the United States has been a life changing experience for me. All my accomplishments would be impossible without God; he strengths me and keeps me going because I know with him all things are possible. I am currently enrolled at Delaware County community college, majoring in pre-med. My goal is to become a physician and hope to give back to my country. I plan on building a hospital in the future at my home town, where in I will help people that can’t afford modern medical care.

Through my past experiences I have learned to manage challenging tasks and cope with them. I am a very enthusiastic student and I think this is one of my many strong attributes. The strongest attribute that I have, is being a sociable person. Handling large social gathering comes naturally for me. I like to communicate with people and get acquainted with new interesting individuals

Finally I know my dream will come true because I am a very hard working young lady who accomplishes anything that I put my mind and soul into doing. With the help of Christ all things are possible.

Fatima Sesay’s Biography

Born and raised in West Africa, Sierra Leone, Fatima is a young and promising media mogul who credits her accomplishment to her ‘African’ upbringing and ‘American’ community, which she’s grown to love and appreciate.

Currently a Producer and Social Media manager for SaharaReporters Media Group Inc., Fatima’s daily routine involves a long commute form Queens to Manhattan to work, where she spends majority of her time uploading and sharing stories throughout social network platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr. There, is also where she and her creative partner Ike put together episodes and stories of her show “Inside the Diaspora with Fatima,” covering issues that are either affecting or celebrating those living in the diaspora.

Some evenings, she attends The New School For Public Engagement, where she is doing her Masters in Media Studies.

Because of the limited resources she has to work with, she feels she is not where she is destined to be yet at this point. However, she is using those resources to tell the stories of the voiceless, those you don’t usually see on mainstream media airways, but are significant to share to the world.

Fatima’s ultimate goal is to finish Graduate school and start working on building a media empire surrounding the community; she hopes to travel the world, start her own non-profit organization helping the less fortunate, while documenting it as a photojournalist.
