Gad has big dreams: to promote democratic leadership in Africa and continue to develop a culture of peace. Through his education, he believes he can have an impact! Gad was still a young child when he and his family fled from violence in their home in DR Congo. Growing up in Gihembe Refugee Camp, Gad saw how poor health and a lack of jobs can lead to a sense of hopelessness. Now that he is a University student, Gad’s vision is to one day become a teacher and support his family, who have suffered since the loss of their father and oldest brother.

Outside of his classes, Gad sings in the choir at his church, is the vice president of his school’s Anti-Drug Club, and enjoys playing basketball!
