Born in Guinee, Hawa Diallo moved to the United States in 2007 at the age of six. After completing her high school diploma in 2019, she enrolled in City College. She was unsure what she wanted to major in but pursued the sciences because it was expected of her. From the time she entered CCNY, she made it her intention to register for courses under the Black Studies Department. This was her real passion and the major she wanted to pursue. She has formally declared her Black Studies major and is working towards also declaring a History major. Her interests are discovering and understanding the relationships of Black people across the diaspora and the ways they interact with each other. She will be graduating with a dual degree: a BA in Black Studies and an MA in the Study of the Americas.
