Joy’S CIRCLE

BIO

Joy is the fifth born in a family of eight children and is blessed with both parents. Joy was born in the East of Rwanda in Nyagatare district but later moved to Bugesera District. Joy grew up in a community where it was the culture to have family responsibilities. Joy’s role was to prepare her younger siblings for school in the mornings as well as clean the house. Joy felt it was a great honor to be born in such a community because no one can just sit around and watch others working without helping each other.  

The COVID-19 pandemic changed things for Joy.  She dreamed of finishing her academic year in 2020, but the pandemic delayed the academic year. During holidays, Joy was supposed to have internships in different fields, but some organizations weren’t able to accommodate interns due to the economy.  Joy found this challenging because during holidays she hoped to practice what she was studying in order to gain more knowledge and skills outside school.  

Joy is currently studying Software Engineering at the Adventist University of Central Africa. Joy dreams of being a successful programmer, developing different websites that will make different tasks easier. For example, Joy hopes to build a website that will help people locate the pharmacy where they can find their prescribed medications instead of going to various pharmacies and not knowing where to buy medicine. 

In her free time, Joy enjoys helping the needy, being around her friends, traveling and exploring new places. She also volunteers at her church and plays basketball, too.
