  • Jan 5, 2015 - A tradition in Justine's family is gathering together to eat and share stories. Spending time with family definitely helps de-stress after exams!

Bio

Justine was born and raised in Kigali. Even from an early age, she recognized the importance of university, knowing how difficult it is to get a job with only secondary education. Hard work and determination led Justine to These Numbers Have Faces, and she is so excited to be studying computer technology at the National University of Rwanda. Justine says “this world is developing with technology, and many things are governed by programmable machines.” After graduating, Justine hopes to become a website developer.
