BioPascaline grew up in the Nyarugenge district of Kigali. She chose to major in Computer Science because it was a subject most of her classmates feared - but she was ready for the challenge! Seeing the growing importance of Computer Science in lifting up her community, Pascaline hopes to become a software developer.
Outside of University classes, Pascaline is very involved in Speech & Debate. She has represented Rwanda at African-wide debate competitions, served as a judge at Rwandan debate events, and also volunteers with organizations that teach public speaking to children who don't attend school. “In my life, I have a strong wish of helping people to know and understand their voice,” Pascaline said. “I plan to continue volunteering in secondary schools, and one day I hope to become a University lecturer.”
