Ibrahima Sow

Ibrahima Sow
 
Advocate of the Indomitable Force
 
Ibrahima Sow is an immigrant from Senegal, West Africa. Coming to the United States at age 8, Ibrahima went through Columbus City Schools and became a first-generation college graduate from The Ohio State University. Being a local advocate for resource accessibility and opportunity for our refugee and immigrant neighbors, he became the first foreign born to make a general election during the Columbus City Council race in 2015. After the ultimate loss, he has remained active, presently leading the New Citizens Advocacy Coalition and engaged in awareness campaigns for neighbors to embrace our diversity through cultural dialogue in all neighborhoods. Through his talk, he will describe the culture shock that many immigrants and refugees experience while trying to make a new life for themselves.
