By Samantha (Sam) Dougherty
Note from Mary Kurek: Over the summer of 2021, Sam Dougherty, while interning for Wells International Foundation, *(WIF) based in Paris, France, engaged with Frontrunners Development, Inc. by joining a cohost panel to interview FIGHR Ambassador Ghazala Khan, connecting with Daughters Global Leadership mentees, and interviewing me about my own journey. I’m sharing the Youtube interview followed by Sam’s written interpretation.
*WIF is a U. S. non-profit organization whose mission is to empower women and persons of African descent to realize their highest potential through arts, literacy, study abroad, and other educational and cultural programs. They are building a network of global citizens who embrace inclusiveness and foster a spirit of cooperation throughout the world. To achieve this goal, WIF provides and supports a number of multifaceted programs, with activities and projects that target all of their Strategic Focus Areas.
