JOURNEY

    • March 1, 2021 – Jane said her biggest lessons from 2020 were: “Well, 2020 was such a huge and teaching year that I almost learnt a couple of things: The first thing is to always be innovative and think out of the box. Secondly, 2020 taught me to always think and stay positive and love as if it’s the last day on earth. Thirdly, focusing and being wholehearted in what one is in!! Working hard opens all the doors. Last but not least, love and respect because I have seen many people helping others in this pandemic.”

BIO

Jane is the second child in my family of three. At a really young age, her parents passed away and left her and her two brothers so hopeless. After a while she started living with relatives in Rwanda in hopes that she could continue her studies, though her hopes for that were near 0%. Her aunt has 7 children and is a widow, trying to take care of all of them!

Jane grew up in a situation where she didn’t want any of her friends to know that she is an orphan because she would rather listen to other people’s problems. She felt if she told them, some of them would stop being open with her, taking her to be in the same basket. The more she got close to her friends, the more Jane realized she was someone who can be relied on. 

When Jane completed high school, she was eagerly waiting to join the university, but still unsure how she would manage her tuition. She feels These Numbers Have Faces is doing her a huge, huge favor by providing her tuition so she can attend university and she is so pleased about it! 

Since childhood, Jane really liked Journalism. She chose this course because according to the population, people live in remote areas and they meet some hinderance which of course need to be overcome, but a high percentage of people leave those in remote areas and yet they’re suffering the most. Jane chose to pursue Journalism because she knew she could succeed and be a voice to the voiceless. Pursuing her passion is the best key to success!
