Umuhir Ntabana

With 29 countries represented on campus, JCSU students come from a variety of religious, social-economic, ethnic and geographic backgrounds. It’s a place for students like Umuhir Ntabana to build a new life. After losing both parents and three sisters as a young child during Rwanda’s most gruesome civil wars known as the 1994 genocide, she was left in the care of her godmother. When she became a teenager, with help from the Genocide Survivors Support Network, she received a scholarship to travel to the United States to study in Boston. This past year she transferred to JCSU on another scholarship.
