JOURNEY

    • April 16, 2024 – Our students shared what was most meaningful to them from our recent Leadership Development Workshop. Shallot said: “What was most meaningful to me was the topic of “owning one’s past for personal growth,” which really impacted me and gave me hope that you can have a bad past but in the future you can become someone important. That means that whatever you go through it can change and you become a great person in the future. This also means to be a good example to those who are like you and don’t feel like they will make it in the future.”
    • March 1, 2023 – In a recent Leadership Development Workshop, we explored the question, “How can you make sure the pain of your past doesn’t determine your future?” What stood out and meant the most to you in this workshop? Shallot said: “What meant the most to me is to let go of my past and think of my present. When you get caught up with your past you don’t think about what is next in life, you think everything will remain the same. It’s about the energy you put into what you do.”
    • September 8, 2022 – Shallot said the biggest change since the end of the COVID restrictions has been: “I have learned to always be patient in every situation and know that everything is possible, even when I didn’t think COVID restrictions would end very soon.”

BIO

Shallot is the third born to a family of four children. When Shallot was five years old, her father died suddenly and they went to live with her grandparents. Shallot’s mother couldn’t manage the family on her own as she was also ill. The whole family depended on agriculture and cattle. Shallot grew up in a community of old people which made her responsible and mature at a young age. She took care of her younger siblings and cousins, setting a good example for them and the larger community.  Later, when Shallot was in secondary school, she went to live with her aunt in Kigali.  

Shallot is studying Finance at Adventist University of Central Africa. Her biggest dream is to become a financial analyst. Shallot grew up with this passion and dream and thinks it is the right time to make her dream come true. She hopes this will also impact her community in a big way by being an inspiration to the next generation, especially those who may want to pursue a similar career. 

Shallot’s hobbies include cooking, listening to music, and enjoying time with her friends. Shallot feels happy when she can put a smile on someone’s face. She also enjoys listening to others and providing advice, helping people to make better decisions and solve their problems.
