Moussa Mane was born in Thiès, a region located in central Senegal. He did all his humanities in this city.

He continued his middle school studies at Mbour 2 College from 2010 to 2013 where he graduated with the middle school leaving certificate (BFEM) and his baccalaureate at the private college Kocc Barma Promo-Educ in 2016.

He was the coordinator of the collective of delegates from Village G at the Gaston Berger University of Saint-Louis where he had to develop an annual program for the realization of certain micro-projects, among other things: the establishment of green space, the manufacturing of ecological benches, the electrification of the green space, the facilitation of the provision of television for the village TV room and the repair of the toilets of group 7 of Village G. He had to carry out all these projects during his reign and was a member of the collective of social delegates (CDS) of the UGB.
His professional career is more related to local development with internships done at the Interprofessional Center for Training in Agricultural Professions (CIFA) in Ndiaye Mbérèss in the commune of Diama for a period of one month for documentation needs of his Master’s thesis. He completed a 3-month internship at the regional development agency (ARD) of Louga in the planning division where he participated in the territorial diagnosis of the municipal development plan (PDC) of Thieppe.
