JOURNEY

    • September 13, 2021 – Jamirah shared her favorite song and what it means to her: My song is called “Most High” by Flavour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-agNj70pXU. I actually love listening to this song, regardless of my own religion, because it makes me feel so connected to God. It makes me feel strong to fight my battles because, with Him, I know I am never alone. Nothing is impossible with Him in my life and no pain is forever.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Jamirah shared what resilience means to her: “To me, resilience means the capacity or ability to recover quickly from all the downfalls that come our way, like mental illness, depression, and misfortunes, and still remain strong, never giving up.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Jamirah said her biggest lesson from 2020 was: “Saving money: In 2020 quarantine, we did not expect that period. We suffered very much where no employees were allowed to go to work and this led to unemployment. People must do their best to save money so as to fill a gap which could be caused by the unexpected like the quarantines. Expect what is unexpected.”

BIO

Jamirah is beginning her second year studying Law at the University of Rwanda. She grew up in a family of ten, she is the second born in her family. Jamirah is the only one in her family who has managed to reach the university level. And so, with that, she grew up as a responsible child in the house, earning respect and giving it back in return.

Jamirah likes reading novels during her free time and as well as participating in debate competitions which she takes as her talent. Her self-confidence and public speaking capacity grow day by day, which goes hand in hand with her dreams for the future – to become a member of Parliament!

She enjoys spending her time training fellow students and people around her in public speaking as well as having the confidence to be good leaders in the future, which will make her community and country a better place. She hopes this will transform the world in general with leaders!
