This year Heidrick & Struggles is sponsoring the run of Marie Giselle Batamuriza. She is 19 years old, lives at home with seven members of her family and graduated from ZAZA T.T.C Kibungo secondary school in December 2015. She studied Languages in school and loves practicing English. Although she is shy, she is determined and an ambitious student. Recently she had a chance to raise her voice and speak out during a local government event about violence against women! We are very proud of Marie Giselle's efforts and success in improving her grades over the past four terms to graduate secondary school! She is now enrolled at the Komera Post-Secondary Transition Program and plans to attend University to study education and become a teacher.
