When I say that being diagnosed with LVNC was surprising, truthfully, it was the severity of the condition that caught me off guard - Being diagnosed with LVNC. The news of a heart-related problem wasn’t completely unexpected.

Although I had been fairly healthy overall in my childhood and enjoyed an active life that involved playing and practicing sports like basketball, football, and swimming or even scuba diving, with my siblings and friends (I even played on my college basketball team), there had been disturbing signs.
Earlier in my life, if I had imagined writing a memoir, I thought it would be about the work that I do as an engineer and entrepreneur. You see, as a social entrepreneur from Mali and Senegal, my vision has been to find ways to optimize the usage, accessibility, and production of energy in Africa.
This is no small task, but as an electrical engineer by training, holding a Masters of Management degree in Technological Innovation, with over ten years of progressive experience in strategic planning, program management, and business development in the fields of energy and telecommunications, working with utilities, businesses, organizations, cities, and governments to improve people’s lives through technology and innovation, it is a task I am well-prepared to tackle.
