Juliette’S CIRCLE

  • T. & C. Wenglar – Austin, TX


Juliette is from the Gasabo district of Rwanda, an area that contains sharp contrasts between the rich and poor. As a child, Juliette remembers seeing poorer members of her community in uncomfortable living situations and without electricity. After asking herself what she could do to help these people, she saw civil engineering as a way to improve the quality of life in her village. When she graduates, Juliette hopes to design energy-efficient and affordable homes!
