    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Doreen said: “The most meaningful aspect of the workshop conversation was the significant connection between understanding one’s origins and effective leadership, as it was made clear by Dr. Kuhn. This insight deeply highlighted the importance of one’s feelings, thoughts, and experience in leadership development. By delving into our personal histories, we gain invaluable insights into our values, motivations, and behaviors, which directly impact our leadership style and effectiveness. Additionally, Benson’s TNHF journey served as a compelling illustration of the transformative power of embracing one’s roots. His journey emphasized the significance of authenticity and vulnerability in leadership, inspiring a sense of courage and authenticity in navigating our own leadership paths. Overall, this workshop supports the idea that effective leadership stems from a deep understanding of oneself and one’s origins, preparing the way for authentic and impactful leadership journeys.”
    • 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? Doreen said: “In the workshop I learned that it is not where I come from that should determine my destiny. For me, praying to God and believing him helps me. Life means living with the sense of destiny and letting go of the past by opening my heart to the positive. Choose the positive, work hard, and look forward not backwards. I learned to let fear go and how important it is to learn to forgive.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Doreen talked about the biggest changes in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “The biggest changes in my life is that I learned how to save, not being selfish and helping others, and working so hard.”



Doreen was born in Uganda and is one of 10 children. Doreen’s parents are peasants, rearing animals for domestic products. It became a challenge for Doreen and her siblings to attend school due to a lack of financial support and ignorance among parents who didn’t always see the value of education, thinking it was a waste of time and resources. Fortunately, one of Doreen’s elder brothers managed to complete a degree and Doreen decided to work hard and move forward so she can also achieve this goal. 

Doreen is now studying Transport Management at University of Rwanda. Doreen is looking forward to completing her studies and getting a good job, where she hopes to help support her family. She also wants to help develop the larger society, by helping people break out of the rigidities around not educating children and teaching them the advantages of getting an education. 

Doreen enjoys singing and helping others in need through church activities.
