The Amazing Students

The students that I work with are so great! An email went out announcing my arrival, and my inbox was flooded with such kind emails from students. For example this one:

Subject: Welcome to ORI Family!
My name is Nicholas Juste Rutikanga an ORI student, and I wanted to welcome you
to ORI family! It's pleasure to have you around and please feel at home!

Or this one..

I am very glad to hear from you and I welcome you in our family. Thank
you for coming to help us achieving our goals.

It's like walking into work everyday and having all of your co-workers thank you for showing up - it's the best! Emails like that really make me realize why I'm here.

Working with the students has been amazing. I've been helping them prepare for interviews, update CVs, write cover letters, etc. The Business Club students (who I advise) have taken such initiative and are already preparing their own business plans. The Student Government (who I also advise) have put together a plan to bring food and supplies to a local orphanage. They're just very focused and dedicated, so it makes them fun and easy to work with!


  1. They are so lucky to have you! Will email you back tonight, miss you, love you!

  2. Thank you Nora, it is very lovely to hear that you enjoyed three months you spent with us. It was really a high privilege to have you beside us.
