Evening with Sandra U.

Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women was blessed to have alumna Sandra Uwiringiyimana ’13 visit the place she called home for many years to share her harrowing childhood experience in her home country of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. During the day, Sandra spoke to several classrooms - the Media Center was standing room only! In the evening, over 100 guests filled the Black Box Theatre. Sandra captivated both audiences as she spoke about her life prior to and following an attack on her refugee camp, her family’s move to America, and her struggles and triumphs as she integrated into a new culture.
