Anna Madeleine Badiane was born in Adeane, in the Ziguinchor region. She obtained her baccalaureate diploma in 2016, series L2. After the baccalaureate, she took the entrance exam to the ESEA ex ENEA, and she was admitted to the Community Development and Training Department (DECOF), specializing in Community Development Animation. During her four years of professional training at the ESEA, she had to complete six internships including three internships in urban areas and three internships in rural areas, in the respective regions: Louga (in the district of Keur Momar Sarr, municipality of Syer and in the village of Malla Takk); Diourbel (department of Mbacké, commune of Dalla Ngabou); Thies (Mbour department, at the Mbour fishing wharf) and Dakar. In Dakar, she was hosted by YMCA where she had to do her pre-professional internship and her end-of-study dissertation internship. In addition, she was also responsible for the professional integration of young people in the Kedougou region, as part of the APTE-Senegal project (Improvement of Work Performance and Entrepreneurship), carried out by the YMCA Senegal. This experience allowed her to discover the problems encountered by the Kedovine population, the existing realities in the environment, and especially to detect the problem of the professional integration of young people in the area. She is also a youth volunteer at YMCA and a business entrepreneur. During her educational internships and professional experience, she had the opportunity to carry out missions and work, where team spirit, a sense of listening, and organization are all required. She was able to demonstrate autonomy and rigor, which enabled her to carry out the missions entrusted to her. Having the ambition to better discover the realities and conditions in which these rural populations live, she says that it will be with great pleasure to work with them in order to participate in community development.
