    • 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? Aline said: “I learned that everything that occurs in our life is a lesson for us, and even our past experience should be a lesson to help prepare us for a bright future.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Aline talked about the biggest change in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “Since the end of the COVID pandemic I have learned how I can adapt to difficult situations and how to cope with the changes that occur in our daily lives.”
    • September 13, 2021 – Aline shared her favorite song and what it means to her: “My song is “Umugabo Daye” by the Rwanda Defence Force military band. Unfortunately, it is no longer available on YouTube. I like this song so much because it shows me the mission for everyone who wants to be a servant leader, as well as a patient person in different difficult things. Being a patient servant leader who achieves their objective means having self-awareness, being self-confident, being accepting, having purpose, being flexible, and keeping a good attitude. So, this helps me or teaches me that, if I have a mission or any responsibility in my community — or even in my country — according to this song, I can try to do different things in a good way with hard work and a commitment to work with others in a way that builds unity among of us. So, this song is very important for me and others who want to play a big role in our community.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Aline shared what resilience means to her: “Resilience mean the ability to stay strong, happy, and successful again after a difficult situation or event that happens in your life. It’s being patient when something happens to you and recovering quickly from difficulty. So, for me, resilience helps me to be adaptable and flexible, staying strong and working hard in daily life because it is very important to be a resilient person.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Aline said her biggest lesson from 2020 was: “The biggest lesson from 2020 was the pandemic of COVID-19. That affected the biggest number of people in world and it affected the economic activities in different domains, like the academic year, reducing the economy of countries. So, in that time I was facing those challenges because of COVID-19, like delays in the academic year. All in all being humble and respectful is what we need in this world because we never know what tomorrow will bring.”



Aline was born in a family of eight kids, she is the sixth child, and grew up with both of her parents. She was born in the Western Provence of Rwanda, in Nyabihu district, where her family still lives. In the community Aline where grew up, many families survive because of agriculture. Growing up, Aline remembers how everyone would help prepare for small ceremonies. She was responsible for taking care of others. Now Aline spends time participating in different activities in her classes where she gives advice to her classmates, helping them to develop good behavior. This is very important to her because it helps her to know that she can share everything in her community without discrimination.

Aline is studying mathematics and physical science education at the University of Rwanda. Her dream, as a teacher, is to develop her professional teaching skills and then establish a model school, which will provide the highest quality of education to children who might otherwise lose the chance to study due to a lack of finances or other challenges. She wants to encourage the younger generation to work hard and to have self-confidence and self-reliance in order to build a strong community. Aline knows education is the source of knowledge, which is the key of development in every domain. She wants to make her contribution to the community by training people and educating them. For Aline, achieving her dream also means she will be able to help provide for her family, community, and even her country as a servant leader.

Aline’s favorite drink is milk! Her hobbies are reading books and watching movies.
