Acqueline’S CIRCLE

BIO

Acqueline is the last-born in a family of four children. She lost her father at the age of thirteen. She believes that everything happens for a reason which helps her to always be optimistic and stay strong, ready to fight for the best of her family, the community, and the world at large.  

She was born and raised in the Gakenke district of Rwanda’s Northern province. Like other people in her community, her family’s basic needs are supported through domestic animal farming and crop cultivation. She has two brothers and one sister. Despite their financial difficulties, with the exception of her sister, they were all able to complete secondary school with the aid of scholarships. 

Being the only one who was able to continue to the tertiary level in her family, Acqueline works hard so that she will help her whole family have a better future. She says that she won’t let the trust they put in her go in vain and she works so hard towards achieving her goals. By observing the gaps in Rwanda’s healthcare system, she aspired to become a doctor, particularly a dental surgeon, to contribute in filling these gaps.  She’s now studying for her Bachelor’s of Dental Surgery at the University of Rwanda. As an advocate who believes in the abilities of people and the power of education, Acqueline encourages youth to love education as it’s the key to success and advocates when necessary.  

Acqueline loves seeing people around her happy.  She enjoys telling stories and joking with people. She also engages in different extracurricular activities crucial to the community. In her free time, she listens to music and watches football games. Together as one and FC Barcelona are her favorites.
