Jean Pierre's story
Jean Pierre is a first-year student at Kepler. Though Rwandan, he grew up with his family in Tanzania, where they work as missionaries. Due to his impressive academic record and high test scores, he was accepted to Kepler from over 6,000 applicants this year. Jean Pierre chose to attend Kepler because he believes it offers the highest quality of education you can get in Rwanda, and he wanted to contribute to his country’s growth from his homeland. He plans to major in Communications with a Concentration in Business, and will graduate Kepler with a BA from an accredited US university. After graduating, Jean Pierre hopes to start his career at an international consulting firm.
