Eric (Youth Research Board)

Hello, my name is Ngabonziza Eric. I am a Rwandese and 21 years old.

Rwanda is a country that is located in the heart of Africa. In 1994, there happened a genocide against the innocent Tutsis. The main issue I am mostly concerned  about my country is the Genocide ideology and Genocide denial. This issue is really hindering my countries policy of reconciliation and the eagerness to unite my fellow Rwandans. The government really wants to make everyone feel equal. No Hutu no Tutsi in the country.

I am looking forward to using Changing the story as a platform where I will express my feeling about how that issue can be solved in my country. I have participated in MAP (mobile arts for peace) and MAP at home  as well. I am currently the president of the MAP youth advisory board. My goal in life is to make the world a better place through peace teachings. I have achieved a lot in life, but the first thing that made me feel confident is when I passed my end of high school national exam. Thanks!
