JOURNEY

    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Aimee said: “I came to know that recognizing and understanding one’s personal history and background can deepen self-awareness and clarify identity and purpose. By understanding where one comes from, we better understand our place in the world and our roles as leaders. From the workshop conversation, I understood how embracing one’s origin can lead to more authentic leadership and also help leaders to navigate future challenges and inspire resilience in others.”
    • March 1, 2023 – In a recent Leadership Development Workshop, we explored the question, “How can you make sure the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future?” What stood out and meant the most to you in this workshop? Aimee said: “What helped me a lot is changing my mindset and knowing that the more difficulties I overcome, the more resilient I become!”
    • September 8, 2022 – Aimee shared the biggest changes in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “I’ve learned to give and share with others regardless of the little issues I may be having! Another thing I learned is saving because I never know what may happen tomorrow.”

Aimee’S CIRCLE

BIO

Aimee grew up with both of her parents and four siblings in Gasabo District, located in Kigali city. She has grown up with a spirit of helping and saving other people’s lives in different domains! In her community she is very fruitful to everyone.  

Aimee finished high school in 2021, with a focus in Physics, Chemistry, and Biology. It has been a fight to get school fees and all scholastic materials. She will study Conservation Agriculture at the Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA) located in the Eastern part of Rwanda. Her interest in agriculture came after finishing high school. “Post-graduation, I explored new career fields like agriculture.” She discovered gaps that need to be filled and this is driving her interest to align her skills and knowledge in agriculture, leadership, and entrepreneurship. 

Aimee’s foremost dream is to solve many of the challenges in agriculture and own a multi-million agricultural company. “The future of food production will require creativity”. Aimee is ambitious and typically looks at the big picture, a trait she attributes to her father, the most influential person in her life. For Aimee, achieving her dream means providing for her family, community and even her country as a servant leader. 

Aimee loves reading novels and singing.
