JOURNEY

    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Prince said: “The workshop was special compared to others we usually have. We had different speakers, each one of them had a different story to share, and I personally was inspired. The most meaningful part of the workshop to me was the story of Benson, a TNHF alumni. His story had 3 parts: life before TNHF, life during the program, and the life he’s living after the program. He reached his current status because he did not allow his unfortunate background to define the rest of his life; and he was determined to do the best and turned the tables in his favor. No matter how he wanted to excel and succeed, he maintained integrity and cared about how his decisions would affect others in the program. I really was impacted and the story made me more focused and ambitious.”
    • March 1, 2023 – In a recent Leadership Development Workshop, we explored the question, “How can you make sure the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future?” What stood out and meant the most to you in this workshop? Prince said: “This workshop was like an alarm awakening me from the past which was pulling me back whenever I tried to dream. This is not about my past but my background. Whenever I had ambitions to become great, there was a bad spirit that used to show how impossible it was due to the fact that none of my family members have reached that goal. I paid attention to the workshop speaker talk about how his life was and how he worked hard with a positive mind and finally became as great as he had dreamed. I was inspired by his story and it awakened the idea that it’s possible that if I start dreaming and react positively to every situation that I will witness all I desire.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Prince discussed the biggest changes in his life since the end of the COVID restrictions: “My life during the COVID restrictions is far different than now; after the restrictions it seems to be easier. I’m currently more collaborative and supportive than before. I learned this after joining university. Before, I used to think that I’m better and I can rely on myself but I realize how wrong and imperfect I was. After joining university I found myself on the other side and was a bit stronger. One friend told me that at university if you are not supportive and collaborative you lose friends, most importantly good ones. Within these 3 months since COVID restrictions ended, I changed to a person who is supportive and, the same time, collaborative.”

BIO

Prince is the youngest child in a family of five kids. Prince grew up with his mother because his father died when he was two years old. Prince was born and raised in Gasabo district in Kigali, Rwanda. Prince’s family struggled due to financial problems. Prince’s mother earned little money working as a seamstress, but still attempted to cover all of her family’s needs. It was a challenge to pay school fees and buy school materials. 

Now, Prince is studying Business Administration with honors in Human Resource Management at the University of Rwanda. Prince hopes to use his degree to advocate for people, especially people who work casual jobs, to be given health insurance by their employers. Due to low wages, many of them suffer a lot. As many of these people earn little, they often suffer a lot. Prince hopes, through Human Resources, to be able to help workers problem-solve. 

Prince grew up enjoying music and uses his music skills in church by playing drums and singing. He also enjoys reading and helping others.
