During the Rwandan genocide, Nadege became paralyzed from having been carried on her mother’s back for months. She recovered fully through therapy and her family was eventually reunited. She is a proud graduate of FAWE Girls’ School and currently dreams of being a psychologist and helping the many people in Rwanda who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. A proud recipient of the MasterCard Foundation Scholarship, Nadege is completing her third year in the nursing program at Michigan State University. After she completes her Bachelor’s degree in nursing, she hopes to pursue her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. During the summer of 2015 she interned with the Human Development Initiative in Rwanda where she worked to promote health in rural areas.
