JOURNEY

    • Jan 25, 2018 – Olivier said the most interesting thing he has read recently that he just couldn’t put down was the These Numbers Have Face’s Leadership Guide. His favorite part was Esther Mbabazi’s story!
    • Dec 18, 2017 – Olivier says that Christmas is a holiday that most Rwandans celebrate, and they usually eat meals that have meat, rice and peas. Olivier thinks that his friends would describe him as “humble” because he always tries his best do live a humble life.
    • Oct 8, 2017 – One of the best moments of Olivier’s summer was when he got accepted into the These Numbers Have Faces leadership program! Another memorable moment for Olivier was when he got his driver’s license. He is excited about starting his second year at university.
