A Blurb

Today, I was given a Rwandan name. My name in Rwanda is Muhorakeye, meaning the one who is always happy, smiling, and laughing. Now that I have been given a Rwandan name, I feel a stronger connection that I did not expect to this place and its people. I feel welcome here, and even though I may not appear to be one of the group, I feel like I belong here.
