14 years old. 

Mariame dreams of one day becoming a doctor. At the start of the 100cameras course, she shared the story of how her grandmother saved her life when she was deathly ill at the age of 6 years old. Her personal struggles have inspired her to someday return to Africa to help others. As a photographer, Mariame is not afraid to tackle large subjects. Architectural photography is one of her strengths, and she confidently demonstrates her creativity in each composition. When positioned at the base of a large building, she can find just the right angle to shoot a dynamic and intriguing photo. This is a feat that is easier said than done!When asked why she was interested in learning photography, she replied,“I’m interested because every time somebody asks me to take their picture with different cameras, I don’t know how to use them!”
