“Bilingualism is a fundamental gift that every parent should give to their children”
It’s funny isn’t it how sometimes our inspiration to do something comes in the most random or unexpected way.
For Faridat Audu, the inspiration to become bilingual came in grade school when she admired her friend’s sister, who she thought was so elegant and sophisticated in part because she spoke French. This admiration inspired Faridat to move to Côte d’Ivoire for University, and to immerse herself in the language.
And this life-long interest has led to academic degrees for Faridat, and to her becoming a bilingual teacher and author, and most recently CEO of a company focused on promoting bilingualism.
