Seth is the second youngest of eight children. While he was born in DRC, his family fled to Rwanda in 1996 due to conflicts in the country. Arriving to their first refugee camp, however, didn’t provide them with safety. Seth lost two of his brothers in the Mudende massacre. The family soon left for Gihembe Refugee Camp, where they have lived ever since. While life in Gihembe has been hard, Seth views his community as a classroom – teaching him how to think, act and survive. Seth will be the first in his family to go to university. His vision is to become an accountant and eventually, one of the most successful businessmen in Africa.
