JOURNEY

    • July 7, 2018 – This last year, Jonathan struggled to balance his school work with his community project availability. He was able to find a balance and schedule his time out, which resulted in him being able to work 50 hours and impacting 200 people! This summer, he is looking forward to finding an internship, and he has challenged himself to read at least six books before coming back to school!
    • May 12, 2018 – Jonathan values being self-disciplined and hardworking, because he believes that with discipline everything can be achieved, and even more so when you add in hard work!
    • March 25, 2018 – When Jonathan was younger, he wanted to be a teacher, because his teachers were always so important to him and he wanted to be that person for others! In five years, he hopes to be a professional journalist!
    • Feb 27, 2018 – Jonathan said he is very inspired by the Rwandan President, Paul Kagame, because of his courage, hard work, and passion for development in Rwanda!

Jonathan’S CIRCLE

BIO

When he was young, Jonathan loved that his community was made up of not just Rwandans, but also Ugandan, Burundian and DR Congolese refugees. He learned multiple languages and gained a unique perspective on how people from different backgrounds can work together. By watching his family and neighbors, Jonathan learned that it is his responsibility to step in when someone needs help.

His desire is to sharpen his leadership skills, and use his degree in Journalism to better serve his community. He is excited to lead through sharing his creative thought and using his writing to help with problems the community may face.
