Why did you choose ESTEEM? 

I wanted to expand my entrepreneurial mindset and gather all the business skills I could get to compete internationally.

What is your Capstone Project and why are you excited about it? 

I will be working on the NExT (Novel and Exponential Technology) Research analyst project with the NExT team that senses and makes sense of what's new and next in tech. The NExt team helps Deloitte's clients dodge headwinds, harness tailwinds, and arrive at their preferred tomorrow slightly ahead of schedule. In this capstone project, the student will develop and maintain the NExt funnel, an online database of hundreds of next-generation technologies, and conduct primary and secondary research through customer validation interviews to expand the NExt inventory of emerging technologies.

What do you hope to do after ESTEEM? 

I hope to work hard and find a job in one of the big 4 business consulting companies and build an experience that could help me start my consulting boutique in Rwanda.

What do you like to do in your free time? 

I like listening to music, keeping up with trends in the music industry, hanging out with friends, and sometimes playing soccer or volleyball.
