Lydia’S CIRCLE

  • L. Jackson – Mount Holly, NC

BIO

Lydia grew up in a dark part of town, where it was filled with memories of the 1994 Genocide, and created a community where her siblings had to remain inside for safety. She and her two older sisters were raised by their mother, who worked hard by selling food in the market so she could support her girls.

Striving to give back to her mom and contribute to the family’s needs, Lydia works hard as a worship leader at her church. She also has a continued drive to serve others by showing tourists the beauty and treasures that Rwanda holds. In addition to providing income to her family, she wishes to create jobs, build Rwanda’s economy, and provide joy to others.
