JOURNEY

    • September 8, 2022 – Caroline discussed the biggest changes in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “We each have an obligation to help make sure our actions match our words when it comes to COVID-19 safety measures. At some point, most of us will find ourselves in a position with visitors, co-workers, and even our colleagues about the importance and expectation to wear a mask to protect others from potential infection. This helped us to work as team because this showed me that working as team increases effort. COVID-19 has increased my humanity by helping those in need and those who were affected by COVID-19. The biggest thing in my life COVID -19 taught me was how to save, because when you save you can’t die like a fool. ln other words, you can adapt to any situations. Lastly, being patient and persistent in life is one of the biggest lessons l got from COVID-19.because without these two things l couldn’t manage to overcome the pandemic period.”

Caroline’S CIRCLE

BIO

Caroline was born in Uganda, the last born to a family of six children. Caroline’s parents were local peasants and because of this they could not afford to pay all the school fees. Caroline’s elder sister is the only one who got the chance to finish her studies. In addition to her family’s financial instability, people in Caroline’s community still believed  in traditional cultures where young girls and boys neglected their rights to go to school. Young girls were forced to marry and boys started farming. There were no able leaders to fight for the rights of children. This forced Caroline to always work hard in class so that her parents could not force her to marry. When she finished her senior four there were no more fees available for her to complete her studies. This made Caroline  feel unwanted, seeing other classmates going back  to school and everyone  telling her to marry.  Finally, Caroline’s elder sister told her to come to Rwanda in order to continue her studies. 

Now, Caroline is studying Accounting at the University of Rwanda. Caroline is working hard to serve and be the light to her community. Caroline wants to fight for the children whose rights are neglected and be a good leader, helping to reduce poverty through teaching people  how to save, maximize profits, and use their properties well. Caroline wants to be a good example of the advantages that come with acquiring an education. 

Caroline loves singing and listening to gospel music.
