    • March 1, 2021 – Rose said her biggest lessons from 2020 were: “My biggest lesson in 2020 was acceptance. I came to realize that we should accept each and every situation that comes our way but again remember that no situation is permanent. I also learned that it is ok to not be ok because I realized that most of the people in 2020 were not ok but then life moved on. I also learned that saving is crucial in life because when you look back to 2020 no one was ready for the situation that came over, but those who saved were better off than those who didnt save.”

    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Rose said: “Servant leadership is the leadership philosophy in which the main role of the leader is to serve. It begins with a natural feeling that one needs to serve first. Servant leadership applies to my life now through being a good listener. As a servant, as I have empathy towards someone, I am able to recognize and understand the feelings and emotions he or she experiences. I should always focus on the goals, community growth and development in order to be admired, respected, trusted. And I try to lead by example to be a role model to the community. I see myself implementing servant leadership in my future career by leading people in the rightful way and committed in each and everything I do. That is to say, charitable work towards vulnerable groups and creating awareness.”

Rose grew up in rural Uganda where there was no electricity, clean water, or medical care, and girls were expected to marry at the age of 12. Growing up in this community taught Rose patience and persistence. It also gave her a heart of caring for others. Keeping her focus on building up her community and empowering its young girls, Rose came to Rwanda to pursue higher education.  Rose is pursuing a degree in Business Administration in Finance, with the goal of starting her own business to provide for her family and community. She also looks forward to gaining skills that will help her to speak out against the injustices in her community. By showing girls there is another path, she hopes to end child marriages.  Rose spends her free time singing with the church choir, as well as playing volleyball and basketball with her friends.
