Helaina in Rwanda


Helaina Stein (A’10) is blogging about her year in Rwanda working for Generation Rwanda, “an NGO that helps orphans and vulnerable youth pursue university education and become leaders in Rwanda’s development and social reconciliation.”

Stein, a former Empower Fellow of the Institute for Global Leadership, recently blogged about her year in review, citing her move to Rwanda as one of the highlights.

The last four months of 2010 were unbelievably challenging, invigorating, and enjoyable. I’ve actually maintained my Tufts-era levels of intellectual stimulation, curiosity, and fulfillment – a feat that I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to manage after graduating. Establishing a life in Kigali, Rwanda is not something I could have predicted a few years ago and I’m thrilled to have a good chunk of 2011 left to continue my adventure.
