FACULTY: General Nursing Sciences
HOBBIES: PLAYING VOLLEY BALL
I was born in a family of 8 children, and I am the 3rd youngest. I lost my dad when I was 5 years old, and I have lived and depended on my mom and old siblings since then. Growing up in a village, we always lived on a farm that we maintained to grow the food we eat. We mostly plant beans, corn, potatoes, and vegetables. Currently we are staying in Musanze city, which is located 45 minutes away to be close to other relatives, and we manage the farm remotely by visiting regular to watch the crops and harvest.
When I graduated from high school, I was desperate thinking I would never be able to attend university. When I was told about the Flahive Family Foundation and the support they would give me so I can attend college, I was very excited and I am very thankful for everything they have done for me. Now, I am completing the second year of my College, in general nursing sciences.
I am very proud of our government and the progress that it has been making to improve our health systems and ensure that people have access to basic cares; the work is not yet complete though and we are still in need of more health workers, and improved facilities. I have seen people suffering in hospitals, and I specially picked Nursing Sciences so that one day I can support my community and my country as a health worker.
