Arsene grew up in a family of 9. After the 1994 Genocide, however, he is now one of only three left in his family. While bitterness and heartache had the chance to take root, instead, Arsene has the desire to be a leader in the next generation — filled with peace and hope. Arsene wants to open a technological school and contribute to his country’s development. He wants to take the resources Rwanda has and be a force of growth, knowledge, and leadership.

In his free time, Arsene plays volleyball and volunteers as a teacher in his community!
