JOURNEY

    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Emmanuel said: “”Umuganura” Rwandans would meet and eat and share their harvest with the leaders. And that meeting improves understanding, friendships as well as relationship among the people in the community. That helps Rwandans to be one and help each other.”
    • March 30, 2020 – Emmanuel speaks Kinyarwanda, English, and little French.
    • March 30, 2020 – Emmanuel said his favorite drink is milk.
    • September 1, 2019 – This Summer Emmanuel took a free online course to learn about web design.
    • May 18, 2019 – This semester, I learned Multimedia specifically video lighting, shooting and editing videos. Furthermore, I made a documentary video that shows the overview or outlook of my college and it looks awesome!
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to his life now, and his future career, Emmanuel said: “Servant leadership refers to the leadership that focuses on serving others with all your heart without just looking at your own benefit. The great example of a servant leader is Jesus Christ the son of God who accepted to die for us all for our sin to save us. This applies in my daily life through the community Impact project that I do for free to empower my community. As well as making educative tutorials for free to help communities or people who visit my YouTube channel. In my career of computer science, I’m looking forward to improving my community by showing them how to use ICT skills to communicate efficiently for free.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Emmanuel wants be known for uplifting his community by providing jobs in his village! He also wants to be known for helping anyone in need – starting with his classmates this semester! Emmanuel’s goal is to be in the top 10 of his class!
    • July 7, 2018 – During this last semester, Emmanuel had some challenging classes and was nervous he wasn’t going to pass them.

    • May 12, 2018 – Emmanuel’s parents are what he values the most, because they are continually there for him and provide for him when needed.
    • March 25, 2018 – When Emmanuel was younger, he dreamt of being a pilot because he was always curious about how airplanes fly! In five years, he sees himself as a specialist in Information and Communication Technology where he will use his skills to empower his community!
    • February 27, 2018 – The person who inspires Emmanuel is President Paul Kagame. Emmanuel said looks up to President Kagame because of projects he has implemented to reduce poverty among Rwandans.
    • January 25, 2018 – Emmanuel recently read a very interesting book about telescopes. He said that the part he liked the most was how telescopes work to view distant objects with small normal adjustments!

BIO

Emmanuel’s family of 7 depends on farming a small plot of land for survival. They raise sufficient crops for feeding their family, but unfortunately don’t have enough for school fees. However, Emmanuel’s desire for an education and to encourage long-term growth in his community drove him forward. 

Emmanuel loves computers and technology, so he is excited to study Computer Science in University. His vision is to bring a technological foundation to his village to enable other young people to study as he did. 

In his spare time, Emmanuel loves to volunteer in his community — visiting sick patients in hospitals and cleaning up his campus, editing, and making tutorials to train people on my YouTube channel. 

These Numbers Have Faces has empowered Emmanuel, now he has hope to put his dreams into reality and empower others too. His life is better than before he joined These Numbers Have Faces and he is looking forward to positive change in his community as well as in his family.  

Emmanuel would like to say a special thanks to These Numbers Have Faces for their kindness and support and helping him to achieve and pursue his passion. He appreciates These Numbers Have Faces for the leadership skills he has learn so far in the program.
