Moustapha Ward

Born and raised in the city that never sleeps, New York, Moustapha is passionate about submerging himself into new cultures to find new inspiration for his creative and political impulses. He believes that racism and prejudice would cease to exist if everyone took the time to understand the beauty of humanism in each and every culture. In high school, he has been involved in his community by volunteering with Build On to help build schools in developing countries. He has also been Student Government president, organizer/facilitator/player for the table tennis team and an active performer at the Children’s Theatre Company as a singer, actor and dancer. He graduated from the International Baccalaureate program from Mott Hall Bronx High School. Moustapha is thrilled to push himself to go to a new culture, understand his place in the world and make new friends along the way.
