By all rights, Joseph should have been a statistic. He should have died young. He should have lived a life of crime. He should have become radicalized. He should have been a drug addict. But that’s not how his story turns out… Joseph beat the odds! Joseph was born in Rwanda in 1994, during the height of the genocide. Joseph’s family was Tutsi. To save their newborn son, Joseph’s mother fled with him to Uganda while his father stayed behind to fight. Joseph and his mother made it safely to Uganda, but never heard from his father again.
