BioFaustin was born in DRC but grew up in Gihembe Refugee Camp in Rwanda due to conflicts in their country. As one of seven children, Faustin has been an example to his siblings to chose the path of education, instead of becoming hopeless, like he has seen happen to so many of the people of Gihembe. Hearing statistics about the great number of people who give up on their dreams due to poor health, Faustin decided to commit his life to becoming a doctor. Faustin’s goal is to be part of the solution to the poor standard of living in refugee camps, and bring hope to the hopeless.
Outside of classes at University, Faustin helps prepare high school students from Gihembe for their National Exam!
