She has dedicated herself to work with and for girls to ensure they are treated fairly. She has organised many sessions and training for girls and women on a range of empowerment issues to ensure that they are well-equipped and ready to change the narratives of how people see women in her community, Sierra Leone, and
beyond. Fatmata achieved a bachelor’s degree in Accounting in 2021.
