Ahmadou Balde is originally from Guinea, Conakry and he is interested in writing, philosophy, humanism and entrepreneurship. He plans on becoming an educator, entrepreneur and essayist in order to contribute to the world through his thoughts and initiatives. In doing so, he hopes to bring his modest contribution to the emergence of a better world.

Ultimately, Ahmadou believes that the character of our society will be judged by our capacity to become one out of many. Each of us has a singular story, but our destiny is shared. He writes to remind everyone this simple, but not simplistic reality. Inaction, apathy and indifference toward your neighbor are the source of all evils. As Plato once stated that the greatest mistake physicians make it that they attempt to cure the body without attempting to cure the mind. He welcomes you to his world and urges you to believe in the possibility of the impossible so that you can make the world a better place.


Je me nomme Ahmadou Balde. Je rêve de devenir entrepreneur et écrivain dans le but d’apporter une modeste contribution au monde à travers mes pensées et initiatives. Sachant que le silence perpétue le silence et rompant avec cette attitude, j’exprime dans ce blog ma position contre l’oppression et la désinformation. Ce faisant, j’espère apporter ma modeste contribution à l’avènement d’un monde meilleur.
