When I served in the Peace Corps in Peru, I helped start a summer school that’s still running today. I expected my best students to be graduating as doctors and teachers. Instead, I’ve watched far too many of them defer these dreams for financial reasons. I’m ready to use my international startup experience to help out.

As a former professor (and student) at the University of The Gambia, I’ve seen firsthand the painful financial choices students have to make. I’m looking forward to launching Jump Finance’s pilot program in The Gambia.
