My name is Salymata Boury, but people have trouble pronouncing it so I just go by Saly. I’m sixteen years old and I’m a rising senior at Mission San Jose High School in Fremont California. I play soccer and softball, and in my free time, I’ll read, watch some Netflix, or listen to music like any other teenager. One thing I love to do is try new things. I never visited or lived anywhere else for more than two weeks other than Oakland, CA, the place I was born in, and Senegal, the birthplace of my parents. Senegal is in West Africa, and I was raised there for about nine years. I’m extremely excited about DR because it will be something I never experienced before. I can’t wait to meet everyone!
