“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
Aminata Touray is very excited to be joining Brilla Veritas. She attended Buffalo State College and earned her degree in Social Work. She always had a passion in giving back to her hometown, the Bronx, so after graduating in 2015 she served as a City Year AmeriCorps member working with English Language Learner students. This experience influenced her decision to continue working in the education field. She wants to continue fighting for education equity. She is an active member of the Gambian Youth Organization and the Smiling Coast Women Empowerment Network. With the help of both organizations she and her team organizes events such as pageants, art shows and college readiness workshops for the Gambian youth in her community. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, listening to motivational speakers, watching Law & Order SVU Special Victims and baking. She is looking forward to meeting everyone!!
