Heroine’S CIRCLE

BIO

Heroine was born into a family of seven – her parents, her four siblings, and herself. Unfortunately, her family faces many challenges, not the least of which is that both her Dad and her Mom have serious health issues. It’s been hard for Heroine and her siblings to provide care for their parents while working on their school studies. But somehow, by God’s grace, they have managed.

Heroine grew up in a loving and supportive community. People encourage each other and feel free to speak their mind whenever they see a need that needs to be addressed. Heroine credits her community with teaching her that women should never be underestimated and giving her the confidence to speak up, to defend herself and her loved ones, and always to
communicate as effectively as possible with others.

Heroine attends the African Leadership University, where she is studying Entrepreneurial Leadership. Her dream is to become a strong and effective leader who will contribute not only to her family’s needs, but also to the needs of her community and her country.

Heroine shared this: “A university education will help me to contribute to my family’s needs, share some skills and mind-blowing ideas that are productive to the community with my friends, contribute to the overall economy of the country and most importantly, become a productive citizen who engages in my community and makes it a better place.”

Outside the classroom, Heroine is active in her church and serves both on the worship team and the intercession team. She also serves as a volunteer mentor with a program called Igire Wiyubake, which works with vulnerable young women, including teenage mothers, to empower them and help them pursue a positive future, including how to reduce and eliminate HIV/AIDS in the lives of young girls.
