In Let Her Speak’s 19th episode of the She Speaks Series, Catherine Porth (Founder of Let Her Speak) sits down with non-profit Executive Director, Storyteller, and Coach, Drocella MugoreWera, to talk about her journey since arriving in America as a refugee from Rwanda in 1994, how we can help more refugees, like herself, and the many legacies she wants to leave behind.
Drocella is from Rwanda, a beautiful country with a painful history. During the Rwandan genocide of 1994, her country lost almost 1,000,000 people. She survived. Many did not. Rather than continuing life with bitterness, anger, and regret – Drocella chose to become a beacon of kindness and light.
Her answer to the question “What legacy do you want to leave behind?” consisted of several amazing visions for the life she wants to live. One of our favorite quotes from her answer was: “I want people to love themselves more. And to appreciate who they are. This is why one of my missions is awakening [gifts].”
