UD Student is also Rwandan Refugee

One night in 1994, most of Clémentine Igilibambe’s family piled into their car and fled their hometown of Gisenyi, a city in western Rwanda near the border of Congo. Because the car was too small to hold them all, 7-year-old Igilibambe and her two older brothers walked alongside. People ran in every direction in an effort to escape a barrage of bombs and bullets. Amid the chaos, Igilibambe and her brothers were separated from their parents.

...Long story, short...

Now a sophomore at UD, Igilibambe is majoring in international studies and human rights in an effort to assist the millions of people around the world who suffer human rights abuses. She is also a youth delegate in the United Nations Agents of Change program.
