My name is
Dear host family,
My name is Rakia Moctar and I am 19 years old. I’m Canadian with Nigerien and Algerian origins. After my high school degree last year, I decided to travel and came to Senegal where a friend of mine invited me. Since then I’ve start working in Dakar, Senegal as an interpreter and sometimes during my free time, as a model. I’m currently totally independent.
My two big sisters live in Canada, one in Montreal and the other in Toronto and my parents are based in Niger since 2016 (my dad who’s a veterinarian doctor had a job there for Mercy Corps and my mom recently built a school where she’s the director)
With my little cousins during holidays, I’m responsible of them
