JOURNEY

    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Esther said: “My favorite thing about our culture that makes me proud is hospitality. I like the way guests are welcomed with much love, attention and care. I always feel at home and loved anywhere I go around our country and I see it through foreigners who say that hospitality in Rwanda is a natural character. This makes me very proud of my culture.”
    • March 30, 2020 – Esther speaks English and Kinyarwanda.
    • March 30, 2020 – Esther said her favorite drinks are passion juice and milk.
    • September 1, 2019 – Esther’s summer plans were to find a way to earn some income of her own and continue building towards her plans for the future.
    • May 18, 2019 – I learned many things last semester, both in my classes and in our monthly leadership trainings. I learned to be punctual in everything I do because keeping time is the key to everything. I learned to be communicative and interactive with my colleagues as it helps to achieve my goals and get more experience. I have to strive for being an important person to everyone surrounding me as an able leader.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Esther said: “Servant leadership for me is a way of leading by making those whom you lead the first priority. It’s also being a leader who serves your fellows heartedly and willingly in every situation, even through hardships, still having courage and patience. How I see myself implementing servant leadership in my future career is through listening and understanding what someone is going through. Putting myself in their place will give me strength and passion to serve them.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Esther wants to be known for being important, helpful, goal-achieving and hard-working! This semester she looks forward to working hard and growing through the TNHF leadership trainings!
