JOURNEY

    • July 1, 2020 – We asked our students what makes them proud of their culture, and Rosette said: “My favorite thing about our culture is trusting God, this makes me proud because I see how all people believe in God and trust God. In my daily life I see this as a great thing which helps people to love each other based on the Word of God.”
    • March 30, 2020 – Rosette speaks English, Kinyarwanda, French and Swahili.
    • March 30, 2020 – Rosette said her favorite drink is milk.
    • September 1, 2019 – Rosette said: “During my summer holiday, I’m planning to help my parents and I am planning to start practicing what I am studying in university, because I am a crop scientist, I will start growing some crops around my home.”
    • May 18, 2019 – Last semester, I learned how to be a serving leader because “if serving is below you then leadership is beyond you” and I really appreciate the trainers for creating this ability in me. Now I’m able to serve in my community. I also learned how to be a Christian leader because Jesus also is and he serves for his people even if he was the one to be served.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Rosette said: “Servant leadership is a type of leadership where a leader becomes a servant of the people he or she is leading. This really teaches me how to be a leader who is there to help other and cares about others. This will help me in my future career where I will be serving my community as a leader.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Rosette wants to be known as a helpful person and a hard worker!

BIO

Rosette grew up in a big family (she is the oldest of 7 kids!) and learned at an early age the responsibility of caring for others. In addition to supporting her siblings, Rosette’s family modeled true generosity by sharing everything they had with the 7 orphaned children who lived next door. 

As the first university student in her family, Rosette is proud to be studying Crop Production an option in Agriculture. Her dream is to combat starvation and poverty by teaching villagers new ways of farming to increase yield. She will finish her degree in 2021 ready to provide for her family and community. 

Rosette spends her spare time participating in different activities on campus which deals with helping villagers around the campus how to solve different problems like malnutrition as related to what she is studying and she is very interested in activities like debates where she attends competitions and singing in her church choir!
