Emma’S CIRCLE

BIO

Emma grew up in a small town that valued encouragement and education. With all of her neighbors checking in on her grades, Emma worked hard and excelled as a student. However, as she began pursuing her passion in engineering, many told her that it was a field for men. Rather than being discouraged, Emma decided to show them that girls can do anything!

Emma is pursuing her degree in Electrical Engineering with a dream of solving Rwanda’s energy problems by creating an eco-friendly source of power. She also dreams of bringing electricity to rural villages at an affordable price with the ultimate goal of ending poverty!

She loves to keep herself busy serving others! She has participated in clubs that distributed school supplies to students, gave first aid to those needing medical attention, and connected aspiring female engineers.
