The Gambia

Focused by Kate Lord

Have you ever woken up with a business idea that you just knew would change everything? Fatou has.

This is her story – the story of what happens when you give a student the skills she needs in order to achieve her most audacious goals.

I co-directed this film with She's the First co-founder and director of international operations Christen Brandt, and I was also the director of photography. Fatou graduated high school as a She's the First Scholar in The Gambia.
