“[T]he one thing I carry with me all the time is kindness. I believe when you “have”, you have a responsibility. It doesn’t matter what it is you have, even if it’s only time, it is important to share it with others who need it. So this idea of “serving”, or being a server, … it is the core of what I do now with the [Aminata Maternal] Foundation.” – Aminata Conteh Biger
