Student Profile

Text from Madison.com (link below).

As Edgewood College graduates prepared to receive their degrees Sunday, their classmate Mamadou Jawo, who grew up in The Gambia, a small country in West Africa, told them they have the power to create “a just and compassionate world.”

Jawo, who described himself as a “proud African immigrant” from “the smiling coast of Africa, The Gambia,” pointed to injustices he sees in society, and called on his fellow graduates to work toward solving them. He said racism, sexism, misogyny, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia and transphobia are all pressing issues that need to be addressed.

“We have the opportunity to step up, demand better, and help in solving these problems,” Jawo told the crowd of more than 400 graduates and around 2,500 family members and friends at the Alliant Energy Center. The graduates received bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees in areas ranging from education to computer science, nursing to business finance.
