Today is the last day in Rwanda. Bittersweet. I am just grateful for this country and everything it has given me. I’ve been told so many great things about Rwanda and what great work they have done in reclaiming their story and healing together, but I really didn’t know until I felt it. To feel what forgiveness, kindness, and love actually is. Thank you Rwanda for embracing us and making us better people.
Hope to see YOU in Rwanda next year! Murakoze. (Thank you in Kinyarwanda)
My name is Jonise and I am the interim festival coordinator for the Anne Frank Project and proud alumni of SUNY Buffalo State with my bachelor's in theater and minor in dance. There are so many things to look forward to in Rwanda, but I am mostly excited to be embrace by the people there and to share this experience with the people going there with me.
