    More from Fatty1

    I was married off as a child...at the aged of 14

     

    I am Binta Fatty a Gambian and i was just 14 when i was forced to marry my uncle, and  at 15, I became a mum.

     

    Unlike most child-wives, I refused to drop out of school. "I can remember sitting my middle school (Grade 9) exams, when i was heavily pregnant. Thank God , so i managed to juggle being a teenage mum and a student.

     

    I am now pursuing my Master's Degree in Diplomacy in Poland. I received a European Union (EU) scholarship after successfully graduating with a B.A. in Economics.

     

    From a child wife to a diplomat in the making. My story is one of determination, courage and inspiration.I will like to share my story with the world .
