Major: Civil Engineering


Described as humble and courageous, David has been serving as a Young Life leader for four years in the capital city of Bamako, Mali, in a majority Muslim country where over half the population lives below the international poverty line of $1.25 a day. He grew up in a poor family with conflicting religious views, with one Muslim parent and one Christian. David says that at a young age, his heart was touched by Jesus, so he decided to commit his life to Him and His service. He has worked hard to finish his schooling despite the challenges of growing up with few resources. Without the DGL scholarship, David says he would never have been able to see his dream of earning a university degree fulfilled.

Now a Developing Global Leader, David is studying civil engineering in order to contribute to the building of his country. He describes Mali as a country in construction, therefore his degree is in high demand. He desires to use his God-given talents to impact his generation by investing in his work, youth, and the community at large. He will be the first in his family to graduate university.
