I am an 18 year old Rwandan student at the University of Arkansas. I come from a multicultural, multilingual background that has given me a unique perspective to the world. My fascination in markets drove me to pick finance as a major and came to the University of Arkansas to obtain the skills and personal network vital in starting a career in private equity, wealth/asset management, venture capital or
entrepreneurship through a personal business.

I have a large interest in financial markets and how capital injections impacts entrepreneurship and innovation. I also play Tennis and hold 3rd place in the city of Kigali for under 18s. I write reviews on interesting pieces of art I encounter (music, film, painting...) on a website hosted by a few friends and I. Lastly, I enjoy spending free time reading about Pan-Africanism and the Ubuntu philosophy.
