Biography: I was born in Burundi in East Africa. Unlike many children my age, I was lucky enough to have parents who pushed me to go to school and work hard. Throughout my studies, I have been driven by a great desire of eventually making a positive impact in my community and the world. I am convinced that young people like me are the future leaders our countries need.
After high school, I applied to an American organization called Bridge2Rwanda, whose main mission is to train future leaders from Africa by helping them access top quality higher education abroad. I am now excelling in my studies at the University of Pennsylvania and intend to major in Health and Societies.
