Though I have lived in California and New Jersey, I have spent most of my years living in Indianapolis, IN.
I am currently a freshman here at Indiana University, and I am an exploratory major with an interest in both human biology and education. Among other activities I most enjoy reading and training in martial arts in my spare time.
Although many of my perceptions of life has been derived from the Rwandese culture of my upbringing, I have been largely influenced by the teachings of Tupac Shakur on the social, political, and economical inequalities experienced in this country.

Throughout my life I feel that there have been four men that have inspired me and given me the knowledge to make to where I am today.
First is my Father over all Jesus Christ because without him I wouldn't be here period.
Second my grandfather because he is a pastor and he inspires others to live their life right.
Thirdly is my real father because he left my mom and I feel that him doing that has made me stronger in what kind of man I don't want to be.
Last and not least is my step father because he is the man that is providing for me and has done so for the past 13 years and I love him for everything he has done.
