Basketball Star to Biomedical Engineer

UWCSEA Dover Scholar Matagari

Matagari Ouattara ‘23, Scholar from Burkina Faso

UWCSEA allowed me to discover my full potential, as a student, a young African woman, and as a potential world changer. As a student, UWCSEA has challenged me with its rigorous IB curriculum, and given me the opportunity to pursue my ambition of becoming a biomedical engineer with confidence and perseverance. As a young African woman, UWCSEA’s diverse community has proven to me the necessity to value my BLACKNESS, and inspired me by connecting me with other talented young women also finding their way.

As a potential life changer, the UWC movement has made me realise how powerful I am, and how my actions make a difference. I know now how any thoughtful action no matter how little, can truly make the world a better place. I have made a difference by being an ambassador for my country. I have broadened my peers and members of UWCSEA community’s perspectives on matters like terrorism, political conflicts, financial hardship, and cultural dilution. I have also influenced my peers to act with determination to succeed, by demonstrating my own perseverance. For example, while I wasn’t fluent in English at the start, my determination helped me excel. I also applied this to basketball. I competed for the school on the Varsity A Team, and was proud to receive the Most Valuable Player Award this year. Playing basketball also allowed me to have something in common with an extended group of students outside the boarding house, which I am happy for.

UWCSEA has armed me with the intellectual and societal experiences to tackle whatever is awaiting me. Next year, I will major in Biomedical Engineering and pre-med. My future goal is to become a Burkina Faso expert in this field, and bring my knowledge and experiences back home. I hope to revolutionise the weak and outdated medical system in Burkina Faso, and help provide relief to the communities.

There are no words that could translate my gratitude for the opportunity to come to UWCSEA. The scholarship has opened doors to a brighter future for me. My family, community, and I are touched by your generosity. Infinitely times, Anitchié! The diverse communities, cultures, and economic backgrounds I’ve lived with for the past two years have prepared me well for the new chapter of my life.”
