“In my country of Rwanda, I completed a degree in human biology and then earned my medical degree. I was the general medical officer at a medical clinic until the genocide in 1994.
When I came to the United States in 2008, my hope was that I would be able to continue my career in a clinical medicine practice. My hope was short lived when I realized there were obstacles impossible to overcome for me to complete the licensing certification process.
The field of gerontology meets my academic interest. My medical background gives me the capability to study and learn in this field.”
