JOURNEY

    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to his life now, and his future career, Jonathan said: “Servant leadership is an understanding and practice of leadership that places the needs of those being led above the self-interest of the leader. I will implement servant leadership in my future career as I will build better relationships with those around me and put them on top.”

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.
