    • September 13, 2021 – Robinah shared her favorite song and what it means to her: “My favorite song is called “Splinters and Stones by Hillsong: I like it because there is full Gospel in this song and, to me, Gospel is all I want because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. Gospel to me is the food when am hungry, strengthening me when I am weak, giving me happiness when I am sad, and, all in all, it is life when am dead.”
    • July 16, 2021 – Robinah shared what resilience means to her: “Resilience, to me, means the ability to adapt well in bad circumstances and bounce back to the normal or good situation.”
    • March 1, 2021 – Robinah said her biggest lesson in 2020 was: “We plan but God decides! We all had our plans in 2020 but God decided not to fulfill them! He is the faithful Lord in every situation.”
    • December 1, 2020 – I am studying Human Resource Management at the University of Rwanda. My dream is to be a business woman.
    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Robinah said: “Language, it’s fine when I see all Rwandans talking in the same language.”
    • March 30, 2020 – Robinah speaks Kinyarwanda, English, and Luganda.
    • March 30, 2020 – Robinah said her favorite drink is milk.
    • September 1, 2019 – This summer Robinah spent time educating younger girls about unplanned pregnancy and encouraging them to wait to have families.
    • May 18, 2019 – What I learned in class about entrepreneurship is being a job creator not a job seeker. While in monthly leadership training I learned about having integrity everywhere I am, which is one of the things that shows Christ-like leadership. I also learned how to use social media at the right time because using social media excessively may lead to brain damage.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Robinah said: “Servant leadership is the ability of the leader to influence others by treating others kindly even though you have a status which is above others. This applies in my life now through my community impact project, whereby this will encourage servant leadership. I will implement servant leadership in the future because I have always dreamt of working in a major financial institution as a manager. In this position I will practice servant leadership through serving others in a fair way. This will be my routine practice, as I learned that if serving is beneath me, leadership will be beyond me.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Robinah wants to be known as a social, loving, and prayerful person! This semester she hopes to excel academically!
