JOURNEY

    • September 8, 2022 – Patrick talked about the biggest changes in his life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “I have learned how to positively use social media, such as getting lessons out of them. I’ve also learned to use time positively and have positive impact on people’s lives. Having self-control is the best weapon to focus on my future. “

Patrick A’S CIRCLE

BIO

Patrick was born in Western Uganda. He is the fifth born out of six children. The first born graduated with honors in Finance and others are still schooling, so it wasn’t easy for his parents to afford school dues due to the fact that they are peasants practicing small scale agriculture intended for consumption. Patrick attended his primary and ordinary level studies in Uganda, staying with his parents, later attending Gabiro high school. He then lived with his three brothers, two of whom are still in school with the support of their elder brother. He graduated in 2021.  

Currently, Patrick is studying Finance (with honors!) at the University of Rwanda.  Patrick is looking forward to transforming his community through encouraging and supporting young people to attend schools. The community in which Patrick grew up had many students who dropped out of school due to limited education options and limited funds. Patrick hopes to help his fellow community members attend school through motivating them, since “education is the best weapon we can use to change the world.” 

Patrick’s hobbies include playing football and reading novels.
