    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Dorcella said: “Servant leadership is that leadership where we serve without waiting to be paid back, serving with a willing heart, regarding the well-being of the people, and living peacefully with people in society. Briefly, it’s leadership without selfishness that promotes others. It applies to my life now, because I don’t see myself before others, instead I wish to learn about them by collaborating with them. Before I liked to do all things individually and didn’t give time to others. But now, I’m enjoying the friendship that collaboration creates for me. In my future career, I see myself improving by collaborating with the community. To conclude, servant leadership is the key that cures loneliness and desperate hearts, and it promote improvement in the community.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Dorcella wants to be known for helping children who have been rejected or orphaned. Someday she would want to be remembered for her charity work. This semester, she is hopeful that she will improve upon her strengths and change her weaknesses into strengths!

Dorcella was raised in Burundi. Recently, her family was forced to flee to Rwanda as a result of political instability. As the oldest child in the family, she spends most of her time preparing food for her family and working to meet their basic needs in the refugee camp.

Dorcella dreams of a day when she can share her stories and those of her community through her degree in Journalism. Although it is a field dominated by men, she is excited to take on the gender gap and prove that women’s voices are just as powerful.

She spends her spare time working on her English skills, knowing that it will improve her job prospects in the future. She loves to debate others confidently and to share her thoughts with her community.
