Originally from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I moved to Utah in 2014 and I have been living here ever since. I am very involved in the refugee community and enjoy mentoring youth and making a difference in other’s lives and am especially drawn to youth who have had to face many challenges. I am currently a student at University of Utah majoring in International Studies.
School District Outreach
I attended my freshman year of college at Brigham Young University, after which I left for a mission. I graduated from BYU in 1975 with a degree in Elementary Education. I then served as a Title I Coordinator and later a teacher with the San Juan School District from 1975 until 1980, serving Navajo students in Mexican Hat and Bluff, Utah. I earned my Master’s Degree in Education Administration from Brigham Young University. I served as an Elementary Principal for the Provo School District from 1987-1996, in both the Edgemont and Maeser Elementary Schools. In 1996 I earned a Doctorate in Education Administration from the University of Utah.
