    • 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? Immaculee said: “I just learned that my past must not drive my future in any negative way. It should be a lesson to help make your future positive.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Immaculee discussed the biggest changes in her life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “The change that happened to me is that I started saving. The COVID-19 pandemic taught me to save especially for emergencies and to anticipate various situations that may arise, which I have never experienced before. Another lesson I have learned is that emergencies do happen. No one predicted that the COVID-19 pandemic would happen and how long it would last. When the COVID-19 pandemic came, there were many people who lost their jobs or experienced a decline in income. The important lesson I have learned is that emergencies do happen and we must always be prepared. And we can solve problems by saving money to use for the future.”
    • September 13, 2021 – Immaculee shared her favorite song and what it means to her: “My favorite song is called “Oceans” by Hillsong: I like this song because I find strength in it that, even when I feel down, my faith will always stand with God. For he is the only one who can help me. Whenever I feel down, I listen to it and get reminded that I should trust in him.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Immaculee shared what resilience means to her: “To me, resilience means the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties, problems and tough times that helps me go back to the normal state.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Immaculee said her biggest lesson from 2020 was: “In 2020, I have learned that things don’t always turn out the way we planned or the way we think they should, but in spite of that we have to keep looking forward.”
    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Immaculee said: “My favorite thing about my culture is unity and this is seen everywhere in our country where by despite what happened in 1994 Rwandan genocide, people managed to reconcile and live together peacefully.”
    • March 30, 2020 – Immaculee speaks Kinyarwanda and English.
    • March 30, 2020 – Immaculee said she likes to drink juice.
    • September 1, 2019 – This Summer Immaculee helped her parents with their business.
    • May 18, 2019 – This semester, in the monthly leadership training, I learned that saving will help me to become financially secure and provide a safety net in case of emergency and it will help me to graduate college without a huge financial burden.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Immaculee said: “Servant leadership is a leadership strategy by which the main goal of a leader is to serve instead of being served. The leader works to serve the people. In my future career, I’ll be implementing servant leadership by giving legal advice to my community. I’ll be giving that legal advice to people who may not be able to pay an advocate and that will help them very much.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Immaculee wants to be known as a generous, honest, competitive and hard-working person! This semester, she is hopeful to get good grades in all of her classes!

Immaculee’S CIRCLE


For most of her life, Immaculee didn’t need to worry about money. Her father had a good-paying job that met all of their needs and allowed her two older siblings to make it through university. But in 2014, Immaculee’s father lost his job and life became much more challenging. Immaculee learned a lot about resilience as her parents adjusted to their new way of life as small business owners and shopkeepers. She also learned a good deal about happiness and unity in the face of struggles.

Immaculee is excited to pursue her Law degree at the University of Rwanda! With the skills and credentials she will gain in school, she knows she will be prepared to achieve her dream of improving her community!

When she makes time for fun, Immaculee loves to participate in her local sports and environmental clubs!
