What is your Profession?
Why did you pick this project ?
I donated my laptop to Sekou Sano & Merveilles de Guinée because he is one of my best friends and the company houses some of the best dancers I have ever seen. Sekou is the reason that Globetops exists and he is such a thoughtful, passionate, brilliant person. I can’t think of anyone I would rather support. Most of my dance teachers came from the Merveilles de Guinée and the company has been generous enough to let me dance with them for the past 10 years whenever I go Guinea. They are the bomb.
