JOURNEY

    • Jan 25, 2018 – One of Edith’s favorite books that she just couldn’t put down when she was reading, is Think Big by Ben Carson.
    • Dec 18, 2017 – Edith says that Christmas in Rwanda for her is when friends and family gather together, and share local foods such as cassava leaves! She says that Christmas brings people together and reminds them to refocus on Jesus. Edith thinks that the word her friends would describe her as is “loving” because she loves people, and also prays for them!
    • Nov 11, 2017 – Edith thanks God for the gift of her education! She is looking forward to the Christmas holiday because she gets to see her parents, who have been staying in Uganda.
    • Oct 8, 2017 – Edith’s goal for the summer was to read as many leadership books as she could! She is excited to meet her classmates and colleagues this year and is looking forward to working hard and concentrating on her studies in hopes of a better future.

BIO

Edith is from a village in Uganda where education was nearly impossible to obtain, and it isn’t valued by any of the people in the community – in fact, no one in her family of 11 has finished high school.

With the odds stacked against her – Edith is pursuing a degree in Finance at the University of Kigali. She is paving the way to make a better future for herself, and developing the tools to contribute wisdom, leadership and employment to her new community in Rwanda.

Edith is currently a class representative, and used to serve as a deacon at her church!
