Tribeca Film Fellows® | 2017

My name is Aissatou Cherif but I go by Aicha. I attend School of the Future High School. I am in the process of making a film on women who have fled from gender-based violence, especially female genital mutilation. The film focuses on mothers who have sent their children to a different country to prevent them from undergoing female genital mutilation. I love learning about different cultures and studying humans. I am also into activism and solving large scale social issues
