JOURNEY

    • March 1, 2021 – Antoinette said her biggest lesson from 2020 was: “My biggest lesson from 2020 is saving and interpersonal relationship because 2020 was a year we had many difficulties and the COVID-19 pandemic as a big challenge. I learned that we should save from the little we have to prepare for any unexpected thing that can come on the way.”

Antoinette’S CIRCLE

BIO

Antionette grew up in a rural area of Gisagara district in Rwanda’s southern province. She is the second child in a family of six children (3 boys and 3 girls). She lived with both parents and they are subsistence farmers. While she was young, Antionette used to play with the neighboring children and she used to read books. In her community 99.9% depend on agriculture, so some children left school to help their parents on the farm. Her community challenges Antoinette to study hard and dream of being different and important to her village.

Antionette’s dream is to become one who is well educated, which will help her to become influential to her community. She is a student of the University of Rwanda, college of education. Her inspiration to study education came from the everyday life of her community. The level of education is still low quality and she wishes to contribute to the development of her community through supporting education (formal and informal).

Outside of her studies, Antionette enjoys chilling with her friends. When she is with her family, she enjoys helping her parents in farm activity, and assisting the neighbor children to revise their studies.
