Pamela puts fears behind her

Pamela Hirwa did not have a settled life growing up. Her parents lost everything they owned during the Rwandan Civil War, so they gathered their children and moved to a refugee camp in the Congo. “I was happy there,” said Pamela. “My parents always created an environment where I felt safe and loved.” But the camp could not sustain the family, and they left to find better opportunities.
