JOURNEY

    • 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.”

Prince’S CIRCLE

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.
