I am a biology major at Wheaton College in Norton, MA with a minor in Business and management studies. I am from Rwanda and I enjoy doing research in prosthetic limbs and how they can be used to augment human movement. Some of my hobbies include making and listening to music, reading, watching tv, and writing about things I love. My goal is to learn all I can about artificial limbs and to take that knowledge back home to build prosthetic limbs for the amputees of Rwanda. As I work towards my dream, I plan to earn a master’s in Prosthetics and Orthotics.
