13. Shimwa Guelda (Western Province, 20)
She gave an incredible ancestory introduction. She promotes very much the government project called Made in Rwanda, and she would literally advise a foreign Business investor to invest in this because it will provide payment balance (more exports than imports in Rwanda) and solve unemployment problems. She is interested in made in Rwanda Fashion.

14. Mukunde Laurette (Northern Province)
She is an emotional young lady whose parents support her so much that she shed a few tears. She wants to be an interial designer.

She is a big fan of culture and she is one of the main founders of Itorero in Lycee de Kigali, where she used to study.
