“The best thing about UCBC is the vision, the change it seeks to bring someone, and the hope for a better tomorrow.”
When asked how he felt on graduation day last year, UCBC alum Benzema (Ben) Anguandia responded, “I felt great. The feeling was indescribable because it felt good to close this chapter of my life and move forward. It is like getting access for jobs and opportunities.”
Studying at UCBC did not come without challenges. Ben acknowledged it was difficult to study and develop his knowledge through books and the internet given the problem of electricity. But, it was worth it.
“The best thing about UCBC is the vision, the change it seeks to bring someone, and the hope for a better tomorrow,” he said. “This vision of transformation means to do something as it should be done and work to be the best self for others. To work in unity, moving together with family, friends, and community.”
At the end of the last academic year, Benzema Anguandia, became one of four UCBC graduates to receive a year-long paid internships with TearFund in Goma, DRC. “I’m planning to get at least two years of experiences in organizations so that I am financially prepared to pursue a masters degree, knowing exactly what domain to choose.”
