DETHIE'S STORYPapa Madethie "Dethie" Fall aspires to
become a doctor and bring quality medical
care to the impoverished community in which
he grew up. A top student in Senegal, Dethie
was always ready to impersonate a teacher for
a laugh or lend a helping hand with homework at SEEDS Academy.
Having taught himself English, Dethie received a
scholarship to join Assane at South Kent School, but
struggled to translate his academic success to an
unfamiliar academic system.
Dethie is now a senior at Roanoke College.
