Visiting guest speaker, Jo Ingabire, the co-founding director of the charity Survivors Tribune describes her experiences during the genocide in Rwanda. In Kinyarwanda, there’s a saying that goes, ‘The name is the person’ and today this carries more meaning than ever. 

“Words create. They create words adorned with love, poetry, music or hate and fear. In the past they have cursed nations with wars born of hateful ideology, and we see the residue of that even in this age. Today however, words will birth life and joy because I stand before you to say that words saved my life”.
