    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Anny-Princia said: “We don’t have the culture of a stranger. The country is very small which means that even if it is the first time you see a person there is a high probability that he is related to a friend or your cousin. So it’s not unusual to see people practice hospitality to people they met the same day. People treat each other well even if they don’t really know each other.”

    • May 18, 2019 – I learned that friends (especially peers) are really important in life. We had tough classes and they were the only ones to understand me as they were going through the same things. Plus, it was way easier and productive to study with them. “Friends are sent by God”, has never been so true to me than last semester.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Anny-Princia said: “According to me, servant leadership is a kind of leadership where the leader knows that she/he is in that position to serve not to be the boss. I will use servant leadership in my future career (being a lawyer) to serve people in accordingly.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Anny-Princia wants to be known for wisdom and integrity. She wants to leave a legacy – having wisely helped her community and having maintained integrity in all her work!

    • July 7, 2018 – This last year was particularly challenging for Anny-Princia, as her assignments were more difficult than she was used to.

She is now looking forward to making this a memorable summer by learning and trying new things!
    • May 12, 2018 – The two things Anny-Princia values the most are God and people, because they mean everything to her!
    • March 25, 2018 – When Anny-Princia was younger, her mother had long soft hair that she loved, so she always dreamt of being a hairstylist when she grew up! In five years, she plans to be a senior lawyer!

    • January 25, 2018 – A book Anny-Princia read that was really impactful for her was The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren. The idea that stood out to her the most was how everyone is born for a reason, and that we all have potential!
    • December 18, 2017 – On Christmas Anny-Princia’s tradition is to gather together with all her family members, which is always a fun time! She thinks the word her friends would describe her as is “happy” because she is always smiling and happy!

Anny-Princia’S CIRCLE

  • C. Hathiramani – Austin, TX


Anny grew up in Burundi during a civil war, in a community where she was raised with value and persistence. Even though her country is going through a trying time, she will do all she can to push for a brighter future. Anny wants to achieve great things so that she can honor the people she grew up with – those who taught her to see past the exterior of a person.  

Anny chose Law because she knows this is a great route to take to help change what’s around her in a positive way. Anny says, “Education is the light to my way, it turns my confusion into solutions”. She knows that education will bring confidence, wisdom and as one of the first female lawyers in Burundi it will help her to be the best possible leader. Anny believes she is a leader but she also knows that a leader is a person who is perpetually learning that is why she participated and graduated from the Young African Leadership Initiative Regional Leadership Center to get more knowledge and grow her leadership skills. 

Anny recently participated in the Vijana Assembly in Arusha, Tanzania. She is a Member of Parliament of the East African Youth Assembly. She also represented her country in the World Youth Forum 2019 in the Republic of Egypt in Sharm El Sheikh.
