Bio

Diane is studying medicine at the National University of Rwanda. She hopes one day to be an eye doctor because of the eye problems she had as a small child that went untreated. She hopes to prevent such problems for village children in the future. While she knows her classes at university won't be easy, she says that she feels she will become a stronger person because of them. "We become better people and feel how strong we are after resolving our problems!"
