Who am I?
I am originally from Rwanda, a small landlocked country located in East-Central Africa. A country known as the “Land of a Thousand Hills” due to its hilly and mountainous terrain. It is bordering Uganda to the north, Tanzania to the East, Burundi to the South, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the West. Rwanda is known for its breathtaking landscapes, including lush green hills, lakes, and volcanoes. The Volcanoes National Park is famous for mountain gorilla trekking, a major draw for tourists interested in wildlife.
I was born and grew up in Tanzania and lived in Rwanda for a couple of years before moving to Sydney in January 2009 for two-year postgraduate study. After nearly one year, my wife and three children (two boys and one girl) joined me, and we have since lived in Sydney.
My two boys have loved basketball growing up, looking up to a legend Kobe Bryant (may his souls rest in peace). I have had a lot of fun driving them all over Sydney and beyond to their basketball games.
