Day 6 Kine


Saliou is sitting on his auntie Kine’s lap. She has her own store selling textiles on the market (in Dakar, Senegal). She is a remarkable woman, working really hard day in day out. She has 3 sons and runs her own business. One day when she was washing clothes (by hand) I commented: that’s hard work. She looked up at me and smiled: Bella, I love working hard! The way she carries herself..with so much dignity, I felt very moved.

Below is the photograph I have used as an example, she is so much more beautiful and my drawing does not really do it justice.

I just saw this video below and it really captures the spirit of what I felt with Kine.. a proud hard working woman.
