BioAs Aline grew up, she struggled with her community’s treatment of women. She saw her other young girls passing up education in order to start families and live traditional lives, but Aline knew she wanted more. As the fifth born of eight children, Aline fought to be a good example of leadership in her own household both to her older sisters and younger brothers. Each day, she makes the choice to take risks and work hard rather than waiting for someone else to provide help.
Aline knows that a university is something that not everyone can attain, so she wants to use this opportunity to give back to others. With a degree in Water & Environmental Engineering, she will work out on how to use renewable energy sources that can serve her city and country. Aline’s eyes are open to the issues that surround her, and with her degree she will be equipped to overcome the problems she sees, and lead those around her into a better future.
Aline is a big fan of basketball, is part of the worship team at her school and was the president of the Unity & Reconciliation group at her secondary school!
