Where I am now, I never expected to be. This song reminds of my past and comforts me when I face challenges. It strengthen’s my beliefs in God and prevents me from taking a wrong path.”

    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Jussy said: “I love our traditional dress (imishanana) especially when women wear it for a wedding they are always smart. And I like our mother tongue since it makes it easy for Rwandans to express their opinions even for the illiterate.”

    • March 30, 2020 – Jussy said her favorite drink is passion juice.
    • September 1, 2019 – Jussy spent her summer surveying her community to learn more about their needs. She found that the greatest needs were: clean water, education – especially for girls, agricultural skills, and employment opportunities. She found that even when people in the community want to start their own businesses, they lack the capital to do so.
    • May 18, 2019 – This semester I finally understood that studying is not all. Helping others will help me to achieve my goals. What you give is what you get.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Jussy said: “Servant leadership is the ability to influence people based on what you do for them (on how you serve them). I believe that if serving is below you leadership is beyond you. Thus I believe that doing the community impact projects will be help me implement servant leadership. Not only will I do it as an obligation to These Numbers Have Faces, but I will continue doing it to protect and help my loved one’s from different communities in my country. I do believe that helping others is important! In my life now, I am responsible for serving other people since I have also received much from them and that will help in influencing my leadership style in the community that I live in.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Jussy wants to be known for her commitment to her studies! This semester she hopes to study hard and get good grades!

Jussy grew up in a community filled with love and solidarity, but like any neighborhood, there were some issues. She experienced times of conflict within her community due to inadequate resource sharing and family issues. She also saw strong models of conflict resolution. From this, she learned that patience, hope and conversation could solve most problems.  

Jussy is excited to study Accounting at the University of Rwanda. She knows that not only will she gain knowledge she can use it to teach others about good money management and help the government to ensure an accountable proper record keeping, she will also have increased her own financial means. She dreams of a day when she will be able to fund her community in the provision of the inadequate resources to promote their welfare. 

In her spare time, Jussy loves evangelism and discussing module contents with her classmates. She also participates in an entrepreneurship club which helps her to encourage upcoming entrepreneurs.
