Introducing myself and my journal: Djigéen history

About Me:
I am Mame Fatou Ndiaye. I was born in 1977 in Ziguinchor, (Casamance) southern Senegal and I used to work for women and children in my community by promoting their best actions and by making films on their daily lives. In 1999 I got a certificate in computer science after a 2 year-training. In November 1999 I got married . Now, I have 2 lovely boys. In 2005 I got an attestation in audiovisual and social communication after 9 months training. After that, with 3 other people, we created a small entreprise called TEXCOM and started producing documentaries. In 2007, I won the 1st prize in the My Hero film festival for the Community Category with a film entitled "Malaria Queen". To watch "Malaria Queen", go to www.myhero .com
