Oumou Bah is a first-generation American and a second-generation Wildcat. Her parents, Saliou ’91 and Aissatou Bah ’98, fled the country of Guinea, which was ravaged by violence, and settled in Tucson.
Bah’s parents both worked at fast food restaurants earning minimum wage while raising two small children and attending school. She says their work ethic and determination to achieve the “American Dream” push her to do her best in every aspect of life.
As the daughter of two Wildcats and a Tucson native, Bah says the UA was the only school for her.
