JOURNEY

    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Deborah said: “My favorite thing about my culture is our language Kinyarwanda. Rwanda is among countries that share a single language across the whole country. I like this because it makes communication among Rwandans much easier since you can understand every person from different places in Rwanda.”
    • March 30, 2020 – Deborah speaks English and Kinyarwanda.
    • March 30, 2020 – Deborah said her favorite drink is coffee because it makes her feel less tired and stimulates her energy levels.
    • September 1, 2019 – This summer Deborah helped her mom around the house and worked towards her driving permit.
    • May 18, 2019 – This semester I’ve learned that everyone has a purpose on this earth.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Deborah said: “Servant-leader is a servant first. A servant-leader focuses on the growth and well-being of people and communities to which they belong. My dream career is becoming a business woman. I’ll focus my effort on what it will take to make my employees succeed in their roles.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Deborah wants to be known as hard working and courageous! This semester she is hopeful that she will succeed in her studies!

BIO

Deborah grew up in a Rwandan community that was heavily influenced by the 1994 Genocide. From this, she learned that, through hard work, self-reliance, and unity, it is possible for a nation to go from division and brokenness to thriving and vibrant.

Growing up, Deborah dreamed of becoming a successful business woman, and she is excited to pursue this dream through a degree in Business Management. She looks forward to being a job creator — supporting her community through employment and being a positive role model.

In her free time, Deborah loves to play basketball and teach children in her local church!
