Adama Abe grew up in Yaoundé Cameroon and had dreams of becoming a translator.  Her journey starts when she realizes that her professors of English might not be the best teachers and she strives to become a better teacher.

Adama becomes an English teacher and looks to incorporate technology and the internet into our classes to connect the classes with the English speaking world.  The administration of her school resists and Adama can see the difficulty with change first hand.

Adama is accepted to the Monterey Institute and learns how to become a translator.  While she is working as a translator, she hopes to also be a teacher and pass the skills she has learned at MIIS on to her country.  She believes that technology will help Cameroon develop and is ready to take her experience and make a difference in her community.
