BIO

Emmanuel’s family of seven depends on farming a small plot of land for survival. They raise sufficient crops for feeding their family, but unfortunately don’t have enough income to pay school fees. Despite this hardship, Emmanuel’s desire for an education that would help him encourage long-term growth in his community drove him forward.

Emmanuel loves computers and technology, so he is excited to be studying Computer Science at his university. His vision is to bring a technological foundation to his village to enable other young people to study as he did.
