Join us for an evening of conversation and cocktails with Mercy alumna Sandra Uwiringiyimana ’13. Sandra’s recently published memoir detailing the remarkable true story of how she survived a massacre in her home country of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and immigrated to America, will be released the week of this gathering.
In her book, How Dare the Sun Rise – Memoirs of a War Child, Sandra tells the story of her survival, of finding her place in a new country, of her hope for the future, and how she found a way to give voice to her people.
As guest of honor at this intimate event, Sandra will read excerpts from her book and speak about the impact Mercy’s Frances Warde Scholarship had on her life… and the role you can play in helping girls from Rochester and around the globe receive a world-class education. Please join us by registering below. Be advised, this is an adults-only (over 21) event.
