PAULETTE IGIRANEZA NDEKWE

Height: 175 cm
Measurements:
Education: Information Technology Student
Flower Name: Red Rose

Advocacy: Nowadays the youth are not interested by being an environmental, most of them are job seekers and everyday our countries will need to be clean and green. So my advocacy is to form clubs in schools by the help of educators so the youth can learn how to proctect our environment, and know that environment play a big role in the healthy living of human beings, and how they can use environment to get out of poverty by creating their own business activities. And that will help us to ensure that our mother earth will continue being clean and green because the youth are the future and the power of the world.
