Ariane, the oldest of five children, grew up in a small community in the Western Province of Rwanda. As a little girl, Ariane was asked to help her mother run a small shop when she was on holiday from school. Early in life she learned how to serve customers, how to be responsible, and how to develop an entrepreneurial mindset.

When it came time to select an area of study, Ariane confidently chose Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, knowing that it was the right path for her to contribute to the welfare of her community members. In fact, Ariane recently graduated from our Accelerate Academy program where she learned more about how to strengthen her business Starlight, which sells solar powered products to refugee and low-income populations.

When she isn’t studying or growing her business, Ariane volunteers to train, mentor, and young girls to pursue jobs in science, technology, and engineering!
