I was born in Senegal on November 3, 1996 from a Senegalese mother and an Italian father. We moved to Italy when I was just five months old and never returned to Senegal. In Italy I lived in the mountains in San Martino di Castrozza – Trentino, with my uncles till my 18th birthday.
I started windsurfing when I was 10 years old just for fun. I realized that I wanted to become a professional windsurfer after finishing high school. After that I moved to Fuerteventura alone for follow my dream.
I started to work as a model when I was 14 years old in Milan. I began this work with the John Casablancas Agency.
Enjoying both of these passions, my dream became finding a way in which I could combine modeling, windsurf and travel into one lifestyle.
Now I’m a professional windsurfer, competing (World wide).
My house is my suitcase now. Flying around the world to participate in competitions, meeting new people, discover different languages and cultures… is amazing, but it is always nice to come home after long periods of absence.
