JOURNEY

    • July 7, 2018 – This last year, one of the more challenging things Stephen faced was his Anatomy class. There were students who had already taken the class that told him about how hard it was, so he was nervous going into the class! Although it was difficult he was able to overcome it by studying well and working hard! He is still in his third trimester, and is working towards finishing his first year of university well!
    • May 12, 2018 – Stephen values his friends and his family, because where he is now is largely to do with their support! He appreciates and values the gift that they both are to him!
    • March 25, 2018 – When Stephen was younger, he dreamt of being a doctor because he always wanted to help people who were sick, especially those who may not have the financial means to go to a doctor! In five years, he plans to be fulfilling this dream as a medical specialist!
    • Feb 27, 2018 – The person who inspires Stephen is President Paul Kagame because he is hardworking, a leader, and encourages people to be self-reliant.
    • Jan 25, 2018 – A book Stephen read that was so good it was hard to put down was, The Power of the Holy Spirit by Kayania, a Ugandan pastor. The part that stood out the most to Stephen was when he talked about how the Holy Spirit comes to those who humble themselves, not to the prideful
    • Dec 18, 2017 – In Stephen’s community, he says everyone goes to church on Christmas, and then after church they go home and share a meal with friends and family. Stephen thinks the word his friends would describe him as is “friendly” because he easily makes friends and keeps his friends for a long time!
    • Nov 11, 2017 – Stephen is very thankful for the reopening of his university, and the upgrades they made! He is also thankful for God’s protection, and the support of These Numbers Have Face’s donors. He loves being able to reunite with his family.
    • Oct 8, 2017 – Stephen used his summer to invest in young students by using his knowledge and skill to volunteer as a teacher at the Kayonza Modern school. Stephen is excited and looking forward to beginning his journey to becoming a doctor!

Stephen N’S CIRCLE

BIO

Stephen and his eight siblings lost their mother in 2006. Soon after, their father became unable to care for them. Dropping out of school to meet their day-to-day needs, life was challenging until one of his uncles got a job and sent them back to school.

Despite his hardships, Stephen studied hard and received excellent grades throughout secondary school. He was then accepted to the University of Rwanda to pursue his dream of becoming a doctor. He is passionate about bringing healing to others and providing a means for bringing his family out of poverty!
