Diane is a beautiful girl born in 2012 who lives with both of her parents and 2 siblings, both brothers. One of her brothers, Evatom, is also enrolled in Hope Shines, which makes the days fun when they see each other so much. The 5 family members all live in a one-bedroom house with limited electricity in an area of town called Nyakabanda, Kigali. Her mother sells vegetables and her father does part time work for them to have a stable life.
Before Diane enrolled at Hope Shines in early 2020, the family was unable to pay for school requirements such as attendance fees and supplies. They are hopeful that both children will continue down a positive path with the guidance of Hope Shines.
As a person, Diane seems to be quiet at first, but when you approach her you will find that she is a sharp girl who is open to engaging with you. She warms up quickly and also loves getting to know the other children in Hope Shines.
Diane is currently in her third year of primary school where her favorite subject is the native language in Rwanda called Kinyarwanda. She is highly interested in becoming a nurse in the future and takes studying at school very seriously to help her achieve this goal!
