JOURNEY

    • July 7, 2018 – Going into this last semester, Darcie was nervous about taking a class that everyone said was really difficult, but once he started the class he realized it wasn’t the class that was hard but the teacher. He was able to study outside of class and get ahead on reading so when the teacher taught in class he knew what they were teaching on! Because of his hard work and determination to do well, he passed the class with a high grade! This summer, he will be taking summer classes at his university. He plans to work hard to keep up his good grades, and his goal is to make new friends, and visit his old friends. He said that it can be a hard sometime for him to make friends, but he wants to change that this summer!
    • May 12, 2018 – The two things Darcie values the most are his friends and his mother. He said a good friend is vital, to be there for you and help you, and the same goes for his mother who is always there for him!
    • March 25, 2018 – When Darcie was younger, he wanted to be a soldier because he wanted to help keep his country safe! In five years, he sees himself running his own business where he will employ people from his community who are in need of jobs!
    • Dec 18, 2017 – Darcie says that on Christmas she and her mother go to church the night before, then on Christmas day they sing, dance and eat special food together! Darcie thinks that her friends would describe her as curious, hardworking and responsible.

    • Jan 17, 2017 – Life isn’t without challenges. Last year, a challenge Darcie faced was struggling to pay for his school feels. With his Leadership Loan, he learned the importance of working hard, being patient and trusting God.
    • Dec 8, 2016 – In 2017 Darcie is excited to work on his Community Impact Project of teaching English to his community leaders!

BIO

Darcie knows the meaning of hard work! After seeking refuge in Rwanda as conflicts had grown in Burundi, he was separated from his father, forcing his mother and him to work hard just to make ends meet. Most recently, Darcie has been working as an overnight security guard so he has time to study during the day.

Darcie knows that skills and knowledge are found in school and studies, but many leadership qualities can be gained through experience, hard work, and humility. Beyond being an exceptional leader, Darcie wants to use his Accounting degree to contribute to his country’s development.
