This past summer, I was very blessed to act like a bridge between Earth Enable's executives and the clients in Rwanda. Earth Enable’s goal is to install healthy earthen flooring to replace dirt floors. I conducted two research projects. The first was an internal audit to redefine one position inside the organization. The second was gathering, analyzing, and presenting data to the CEO on how the company can boost its productivity. I learned that a successful non-profit organization has to put the client 100% at the center. I did my best to combine my research data and on-site experience to make key recommendations to the organization. 

Through the summer, my knowledge of public service increased very much. I learned that The country's tragic history did not stop the citizens to work hard towards a bright future.

The two most rewarding experiences I did outside of work were traveling across the country and hanging out with my workmates after work. I got a chance to visit lakes, national parks, beaches and a beautiful island called Zanzibar which is the most beautiful place I have ever been to
