A Michigan State University report by Sue Nichols, Senior Communications Manager for Science and Research at MSU, introduces Jemima Mukashyaka, a young woman from Rwanda who writes about her personal experiences before, during, and after the 1994 genocide.
Jemima narrowly escaped being killed, lost many family members, and suffered after the genocide period. Today, thanks to the coffee business she runs, her life is better.
