Why I chose ESTEEM ?

I chose to join ESTEEM because the program combines both technology and entrepreneurship. It equips students with tools needed in the real world through learning while executing at the same time.

My capstone project and why I'm excited about it ?

I am currently working with Vanoma Inc, which is a tech start-up in Rwanda. The project’s target is to enable e-commerce in Rwanda via delivery and warehousing services. I am very excited about this project because it will significantly contribute to the development of Rwanda––my home country!! I am hoping to improve my analytic skills by working on this project.

What I hope to do after ESTEEM ?

After ESTEEM, I plan to join a tech start-up, which will equip me with more tools/skills that I need to get to my long-term WHY. Long-term WHY––Contribute to the development of Rwanda regardless of the field. It might be through healthcare, technology, infrastructure, education, etc

What I like to do when I'm not working ?

Cooking, Traveling, Running, Listening to music, Hanging out with friends
