Bio

Agnes is one of 10 children and the first in her family to go to university. When Agnes was very young, she and her family were forced to flee their home in Congo and seek refugee in Rwanda's Gihembe Camp, where they have lived for nearly 20 years. Agnes watched the youth in the camp become restless with no hope of pursuing their higher education, but she never gave up on her dreams of University, and volunteered her time teaching children and serving as a Red Cross Counselor. Now that she is a These Numbers Have Faces scholar, Agnes plans to one day start her own business and mentor young women to become leaders in their communities!
