    • September 13, 2021 – Prosper shared his favorite song and what it means to him: “My favorite song is “Papa” by Johnny Drille: This song reminds me about two things: the love of a parent and to pray during my hard times.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Propser shared what resilience means to him: “For me, resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or tough situations.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Prosper said his biggest lesson from 2020 was: “In 2020 I leaned that new problems require new solutions. The Covid-19 pandemic made many activities of our normal life impossible. For example, we couldn’t attend face to face classes and Sunday services. We couldn’t visit our friends and families. So we tried to find new ways of doing these by replacing physical gatherings with online meetings. So every problem has its solution.”

    • May 18, 2019 – This semester, I learned that a leader should not be discouraged by negativity, but he/she has to overcome that and continue to influence others to achieve a goal.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to his life now, and his future career, Prosper said: “Servant leadership is a leadership philosophy in which the main goal of the leader is to serve. A servant leader shares power, puts the needs of the employees first, and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible. As a servant leader, I am a servant first. I focus on the needs of others, especially family members, friends and classmates, before I consider my own. I acknowledge other people’s perspectives, give them the support they need to meet their work and personal goals, involve them in decisions where appropriate, and build a sense of community within my team.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Prosper wants to be known for helping others recognize their purpose and inspiring them to believe they can make a difference! He can’t wait to start school and grow his knowledge in IT!

Prosper’S CIRCLE

  • Faithful Savior Lutheran Church – Portland, OR


Prosper is the second oldest child in a family of eleven. As a result, he learned responsibility at a young age. His father is one of the local primary school teachers. From this experience, Prosper learned the importance of education, discipline, and hard work. Watching his mother stay home and care for all of his younger siblings, Prosper often pitched in and learned what it meant to be a contributing member of a family. 

Prosper is excited to pursue a university degree focused on Information Technology. Not only does he believe this degree will enable him to bring technology to rural Rwanda, but he also looks forward to the day he will be able to meet the financial needs of his family.  

When Prosper takes a few minutes for fun, he loves to sing in his church choir and play point guard for his local basketball team!
