1) Why do you participate as an organizer for W2R? What drives you?
I think its my responsibility to be the change I want to see. I think no one else is responsible to do it. I make it personal. I want to make the world a better place and after all I want to sit down, assess myself and see what I can or can’t do by myself. I am also training myself to do great things in the future. The love of my country drives me.
2) What makes you proud to be Rwandan?
I am called Rwandan wherever I go. I am proud of the way Rwanda is developing, Reconciling, Peace, and the way Rwandans are receiving salvation.
3) What do you wish people knew about Rwanda?
I wish they knew how united we are, and recovering from the ashes of 1994. I wish people knew how we are developing, how education is promoted and how standards of living of Rwandans are increasing day by day.
4) What is your vision for Rwanda and the entire continent in ten years?
My vision for Rwanda and the entire continent is too see people independent in all aspects of life without begging from Bazungus.
5) How do you bring about change in your community?
I bring about change in my community by giving more time to vulnerable people through counseling and helping as well as spreading the gospel because by knowing the character of God their lives can be transformed completely.
6) What do you think is the leading cause of war or genocide in one word?
7) If you were asked to describe yourself in one word, what would it be?
