I have always wanted a greater platform to serve my community.

Rosette Mutesi was born in Uganda but raised in Rwanda. She attended Mount Kenya University where she became a Public Health Department deputy student leader, responsible for a wide variety of mentoring, discipline, and community building activities. Before receiving her bachelor’s degree in public health, she worked with Gardens for Health International as a monitoring and evaluation associate assessing the needs of program beneficiaries, including pregnant women and malnourished children, in terms of information and services, and formulating recommendations to inform health educational program. She also worked with Health Development Initiative (HDI) where she supported cooperatives of marginalized people and people living with HIV to manage their cash grants provided by HDI on HIV transmission and linked them to HIV/AIDS services. She likes smiling.
