Irené is a recent high school graduate from Zambia and his family has been dear friends of Arise for years. We are so excited to share that he has been accepted into the El Centro Chevron Academy of Engineering through Texas A&M! This program is through A&M and he is taught by Aggie professors. After a year, (grades permitting) he will transition to College Station. It is exciting to send Irené to the States for college, but we need your help to do it!
Irené is driven, hardworking, and focused. When he’s not doing homework or studying (which isn’t frequent), he loves producing songs and playing the drums. He wants to be a computer engineer or scientist. He’s fascinated by computer technology and wants to learn how it all works. He wants to one day own his own company that focuses on capitalizing on new engineering capabilities to help develop not only his home, but Africa as a whole.
