“I am the middle child, the 4th oldest in my family. My dream is to learn English.”Born in a small village in the Congo, Nyota and her family were forced to flee their home to escape the violence of war. She was only 6 years old and has few memories of that time beyond that she lost loved ones. After 16 years in a refugee camp in Burundi, Nyota and her family became eligible to relocate to the United States to build a brighter future in peace and security.

In October 2018 she received her very first paycheck, helping to support her family through candle-making. Today Nyota shares a home with her mother, two brothers, and three sisters. Her dream is to learn English so that she can grow alongside her family and thrive.
