It took me eight hours to realise what an extraordinary, and influential mother Denise Uwimana-Reinhardt is to many people. She’s the kind of person who has thoughtful views.
She is the kind of mother who always has time for her three children, and the kind of community leader who has a seat on the board of every major project of Iriba Shalom impoverished citizens.
Growing up with such a strong role model, her children (Fiston, Titan and Petit) developed many of her enthusiasms. I not only came to love the excitement of learning simply for the sake of knowing something new, but I also came to understand the idea of giving back to the community in exchange for a new sense of life, love, and spirit.
