This week the Chairperson of Imbuto Foundation & Unity Club Rwanda, First Lady Jeanette Kagame met with women from different fields including those that previously participated in Miss Rwanda.
They talked about the challenges, criticism they face as girls, how to overcome them, and how to cease opportunities Rwanda offers as a country
The forum made up of women of different age groups shared experiences and words of wisdom, inspirational stories and the ultimate call for everyone to aim higher.
Miss Rwanda sisters consisted of Miss Rwanda contestants of different times, including Winny Ngamije who became the second Runner Up 2009, Naomie Ishimwe, Jolly Mutesi, Meghan Nimwiza among others.
HON. Assumpta Ingabire called on them to assess problems in their communities and do what they can to make a difference.
Lieutenant Arielle I. Sekamana said “Every time you wake up and put make up on your face, post a picture of yourself, talk about what you’ve done, take a few words to talk about your nation.’
Yesterday First Lady Jeannette Kagame posted on her social media expressing how joyful and determined she is to see the Miss Rwanda figures making it in life.
“Dear Miss Rwanda contestants, we acknowledge that these are tough times for you. In the spirit of motherhood and sisterhood, we must persistently emphasize that today and tomorrow’s right decisions and choices will make you stronger. May you be liberated by the successes we believe you are capable of, even in the face of adversity. We wish you safety and unwavering resolve as you overcome this precarious period.”
Miss Rwanda sisters thanked the First Lady for valuing them and they assured her they are going to increase the efforts they were using in serving the communities they live in.Follow @davishigiro
