Event Description:
The Jesuit Refugee Service/USA in Milwakee will host Dr. Mireille Twayigira on Tuesday, April 9, at 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. in the AMU 157. Dr. Twayigira will present “Full of Hope: One Refugee’s Journey of Survival, Resilience, and Education.”

Dr. Mireille Twayigira’s story is one of both survival and resilience. A refugee who had to flee from the Rwandan conflict, Twayigira spent much of her early childhood in search of a home. After a tragic and difficult journey in which she lost her sister, mother, and grandmother, Twayigira found hope through education. She received an education through Jesuit Refugee Service at Dzaleka camp in Malawi, which led to a scholarship to medical school in China. Now Twayigira, who says she was “meant to serve others,” uses her medical degree and her story to help others heal and maintain hope.
