    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to his life now, and his future career, Innocent said: “Servant leadership is a philosophy in which the main goal of the leader is to serve people. The way I see myself implementing leadership in my future career is through the involvement in different groups at my university. For instance, I’m a leader in my choir and I am also a leader in my class. Based on this, I think that it is my beginning to start practicing in leadership to have experience.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Innocent wants to be known as someone who did his best to help others! He is so excited to be starting university!

Growing up, Innocent encountered many troubles. As a child of a single mother who supported his family through odd jobs and farming, it was often a struggle to gather school fees. At the end of a long school day, instead of playing or studying with the other children, he helped his mother with cooking and working. His grades often suffered, and many times he considered dropping out of school. One day, Innocent went to church and prayed for courage. From that day on he went from the bottom to the top of his class, even getting a scholarship for secondary school.

As the first in his family to go to school, Innocent is excited about how this experience will enable him to lead his community. He is studying to become a lawyer. Upon graduating, he plans to advocate from women in rural areas experiencing domestic abuse.

Innocent is a talented musician who uses his skills to give back to his community! He loves to perform in church, at school, and at special events such as Genocide commemorations and weddings. He also loves teaching the young people of his community English and French to help them succeed in school!
