JOURNEY

    • May 18, 2019 – This semester, I learned how to stand firm and be confident during class presentations for it prepares me for my future prospects. And from the leadership training, I learned how to be a good leader and also learned how to save money and how to use it well.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Rose said: “Servant leadership is the leadership philosophy in which the main role of the leader is to serve. It begins with a natural feeling that one needs to serve first. Servant leadership applies to my life now through being a good listener. As a servant, as I have empathy towards someone, I am able to recognize and understand the feelings and emotions he or she experiences. I should always focus on the goals, community growth and development in order to be admired, respected, trusted. And I try to lead by example to be a role model to the community. I see myself implementing servant leadership in my future career by leading people in the rightful way and committed in each and everything I do. That is to say, charitable work towards vulnerable groups and creating awareness.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Rose wants to be known as a successful person who impacted her community! She wants to be a helper who gives whole-heartedly to people in need! This semester, Rose hopes to balance her studies with charity work in her community!

BIO

Rose grew up in rural Uganda where there was no electricity, clean water, or medical care, and girls were expected to marry at the age of 12. Growing up in this community taught Rose patience and persistence. It also gave her a heart of caring for others. Keeping her focus on building up her community and empowering its young girls, Rose came to Rwanda to pursue higher education.

Rose is pursuing a degree in Business Management, with the goal of starting her own business to provide for her family and community. She also looks forward to gaining skills that will help her to speak out against the injustices in her community. By showing girls there is another path, she hopes to end child marriages.

Rose spends her free time singing with the church choir, as well as playing volleyball and basketball with her friends.
