BioGerard is from a rural village where most of his classmates dropped out of school at an early age to help their parents with farming. After watching so many of his neighbors suffer from preventable diseases, and learning about the lack of medical experts in Rwanda, Gerard knew his vision was to become a doctor. Through leading workshops on disease prevention and family planning, Gerard is determined to fight poverty in his community, and be a role model to youth in Rwanda.
Outside the classroom, Gerard serves as a national officer of a student medical association!
