BIO

Sonia was born to a family of four girls. Her father died when she was very young. She was raised by her mother, who she still lives with, and she struggled since she was a single mother with a low-income job.  

Sonia is currently studying Computer Engineering at the University Of Rwanda and her dream is to be among the very few women in her country to hold a PhD in Computer Science.  She also wants to use her skills gained from University to create e-learning platforms for young kids so that they can watch animation videos that strengthen their cultural patriotism.  

Sonia has a variety of hobbies. She loves reading, photography, debate, singing, and dancing. She also loves volunteering to help high school students with their debate competitions.
