Uwizeyimana Marie Josee is an external student from Kigali in Rwanda, studying for Bachelor of Biomedical Laboratory Technology. She is an orphan and the last born of five siblings, two of whom died shortly after the parents passed away in 1994 and 2000 respectively, leaving the three surviving siblings in the care of their elderly grandfather. Through a lot of financial hardship, Josee attended a government school in her primary.

In Ordinary level, she attended a public school and the little money that was needed for school requirements was offered by Forum for African Women Educationist (FAWE) Rwanda. She excelled at ‘O’ level and was offered an Advanced Level sponsorship from Imbuto Non-Profit Foundation founded by Rwanda’s First Lady Her Excellency Mrs Jeannette Kagame. While in secondary school, she was the coordinator of French Club. Having lost all hope for further education after colleges failed to accept her on Government Sponsorship, Josee moved to Kigali town where she secured a job as a housemaid until luck came her way much later when she was accepted on the MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program. Her dream is to help her remaining siblings and community out of poverty one by one and also through her work as medical personnel, she plans to help her society in fighting epidemics as well as disease control and awareness.
