JOURNEY

    • September 1, 2019 – Yvonne spent her summer visiting the Rutsiro District (one of the Districts in the Western Province of Rwanda) where her mother is originally from. She also spent time helping her parents.
    • May 18, 2019 – This semester, Yvonne learned to persist and never give up on what she wants to accomplish. She also learned to keep “watering” her dreams and keep referring back to her goals. She also sees continuing to walk with Christ as a way to achieve her goals.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Yvonne said: “Servant Leadership is leadership where the main goal of a leader is to serve. In my life now, I see leaders in Rwanda who are serving citizens by asking them what they need. For me to be a good servant leader, I will put the needs of others first, help people so that they can achieve their goals, and even me I will achieve my goal of being a good leader! So instead of the people working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Yvonne wants to be known for her kindness! This semester she is excited as she starts university to become a statistician! She hopes she will get good grades!

BIO

Yvonne grew up in a community without schools, hospitals, roads, or even smartphones. Many young women were getting pregnant at a young age,  but Yvonne knew she wanted to live life differently. After many years of persistence and hard work, Yvonne is ready to attend university and become a role model to her community!

Yvonne is pursuing a degree in applied statistics with the goal of helping Rwanda’s Development. Her dream job is to work with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, helping to integrate her country even better into the rest of the world.

In her free time, Yvonne has been a leader for the local Anti-AIDS and Red Cross Clubs. She also spends time volunteering, encouraging local children to read with the INEZA Foundation.
