Here is Something You Should See…


Haoua Oumarou Moussa is the President of the students of the African Development University (ADU); she tells us about her journey: During her childhood, she did not have many friends because she was different and preferred to play soccer instead of the jump rope. Outside of soccer, she was engaged in creative DIY with cardboard and boards, and thus discovered her enormous talent, which made her stand out at school and in her family. Her parents were always her role models and her first source of inspiration, making her believe that she could do anything. She teaches us perseverance, citing us the example of her enormous attempts before succeeding to occup her position as President of Students, she also teaches us gratitude, as it is to have been accepted in this prestigious university and having exceptional parents who boosted her, and encouraged her to dream, to dream big. Haoua also encourages us not to be afraid of being different from others, because in this difference is our strength; the strength that allows her to become the First female student that had the courage to stand for elections to become the Student’s President, in a context where women are always hidding. My name is Haoua Oumarou Moussa, I am 24 years old, I am a 3rd year law student at A.D.U. (African Development University) and at the same time student president of my university. Holder of a Bac A and having attempted the Bac D 2 years later, I had to continue my academic career at UNICAN (Canadian University) for my apprenticeship in law. But I was not satisfied because I wanted to learn more in different fields, so after a year I left UNICAN to enroll at A.D.U. (African Development University).

Outside of my studies, I have been involved in a lot of extra-curricular activities since college, mainly community activities, leadership activities and sports. Being passionate about sports since I was a child, I had to join the women’s national football team of Niger in 2018.

I have also been interested in the entrepreneurial world for a very long time because having an entrepreneurial father, I was often amazed when I saw him working.

I am also the creator of Save Them Yourself, an innovation in the fight against covid19.

Finally, I am a dynamic, motivated and committed person who loves to learn and discover new things and culture and also always looking for a way to achieve my goals. Hoping one day to be one of the most influential women in Niger, if not Africa. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
