Gisele will never forget the day a group of pharmacy students came to visit her class in secondary school. That day inspired her dream to become a pharmacist, someday. After the loss of her father, however, Gisele was uncertain if she’d be able to go to University to pursue her dream career. Through her family’s struggles, Gisele has learned that her happiness and success is based off of helping others find the healthiest version of themselves. Now that she is in University, she is getting the skills to one day help create jobs and provide medicine to those who need it. Even before she has completed her degree, she has left an impact on the lives of those around her. She is a leader worth following, and a changemaker for her generation.

Gisele is the Research and Education Officer in the Rwanda Pharmaceutical Students Association, and is a worship leader at her church!
