I would like to take this opportunity to thank The New Times team for all the support that they have been providing to Devine Uwikirezi and I. It’s truly remarkable and amazing in so many ways.
As you may already know, this journey for me is an opportunity to be a role model and spokes person for children living in unfortunate circumstance.
As a person who has had to work very hard to achieve goals in life, I am very supportive of universal education and gender equality.
This is in hope that children across the world obtain the opportunity to receive quality education and that girls no longer be deprived of the opportunity to be educated and to seek career development in their field of interests.
I hope that I can be another example to our youth, demonstrating that no matter how many challenges we face in life, we should never lose hope in our dreams.
Once again, I would like to thank everyone who has been supporting Divine and I. We immensly appreciate everyone who has been taking the time to vote!
Thank you and I am incredibly grateful for your support.
