JOURNEY

    • September 8, 2022 – Patrick shared the biggest changes in his life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “My thinking has expanded because before COVID restrictions relaxed many of my choices depended on those restrictions. I can now access opportunities outside my campus, but before I could not go outside the campus due to COVID restrictions.”

Patrick’S CIRCLE

BIO

Patrick was born to a family of ten children and he lost his parents at the age of 13. It was a big challenge for his older sibling to pay school fees for Patrick and his siblings, as well as taking care of other family expenses. This made Patrick work hard whenever he got an opportunity to access education. This helped him get a scholarship to pursue a degree in Conservation Agriculture at the Rwanda Institute for Conservation Agriculture (RICA). Patrick is looking forward to using the skills he is acquiring to design solutions to improve food sustainability in Rwanda. Patrick enjoys seeing his actions put a smile on someone’s face; this makes Patrick want to find solutions that will positively impact disadvantaged people in his community. 

Patrick is a co-founder of Agri-ThinkTank, an early-stage startup developing innovative solutions to further the agriculture sector and protect the environment.

During his free time, Patrick enjoys reading non-fiction books, writing articles on various topics, and traveling.
