Yvonne has a joyful spirit and is always quick to laugh. She is the second born in a family of 8 from Congo that moved as refugees to Rwanda in the mid-90's. She worked hard in school and received outside support for much of high school and now through university. She says that the people that support her are her inspiration and she hopes one day to imitate them and be able to help others like her in the future.
