Fatoumata Tambadou came to New York City in 2004 from Gambia in West Africa in search of a brighter future. Mrs. Tambadou and her husband are the proud parents of three beautiful children - two boys and one girl. In 2012, after receiving her permanent resident card, she started to search on the internet for opportunities in the medical field. She found the SUNY Bronx EOC’s website. She could not believe that the programs and services offered were free of charge. Shortly thereafter, she registered to take the Medical Assistant program.
