I was born and raised in Rwanda, and I am a first-year Biochemistry student. For the time I have been at the University, I have been conducting research on the role of STIM1 and STIM2 in the development of Pulmonary Hypertension under the supervision of Dr. Jason X.-J. Yuan. I truly enjoy spending time in the laboratory and investigating the facts and beauty of science. Being part of the Arizona Dental Brigade and the U of A African American Association has enhanced my career path as I walk towards attending Dental school. I am a CBC Department Ambassador, and I urge helping people around me and making a difference in the community. In my spare time, I love swimming and watching movies.
