JESUIT WORLDWIDE LEARNING
“I am an ambitious girl who does not believe in failure. I am that girl who strongly believes that women should be given equal rights as men. I am that girl that believes that women and girls can change the world and make it a better place for all.” Collette
Collette, her parents, and six siblings live in Malawi, having fled conflict in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Collette applied for the JWL Creative Writing and Design programme because she loves to write and wants to challenge the notion that “design and technology are not for girls.” She believes that JWL courses “are useful because they increase one’s intellectual capacity. It’s something that can aid a person to start up a business of their own, and they give a person a career.” Collette dreams of pursuing her education, becoming independent, and contributing to her community. She is especially passionate about becoming a role model for other women and girls in her community.
