    • 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, such as theft, land disputes, and family issues. She also saw strong models of conflict resolution. From this, she learned that patience and conversation could solve most problems.

Jussy is excited to study Finance at the University of Rwanda. She knows that not only will she gain knowledge she can use to teach others about good money management, she will also have increased her own financial means. She dreams of a day when she will be able to fund a better school for her community.

In her spare time, Jussy loves to sing in her local church and volunteer with the Red Cross club!
