Samba is an international student researching the cultural identity of the Fula people in the valley of the Senegal River. He is studying and translating two volumes of Fula poetry by poet / journalist Ibrahima Moctar Sarr to understand what it means to be Fula in this particular region of the world. His goal is to learn about the Fula from their own perspective while uniting people using poetry and translation saying, "Poetry can help us understand and respect each other better, encouraging us to work together and cherish our common humanity."
