I was born on February 14, 1982 in Bukavu, South Kivu, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, DRC. I grew up in Goma and this is where I live now. My father is a shopkeeper and I am the eldest in a family of eight children, four girls and four boys.
I was born on December 25, 1980 in the village of Akuki in the Oyam district of northern Uganda. I'm the first born in a family of four children. Both of my parents are still alive, but two of my brothers were abducted in an attack by the Lord’s Resistance Army, LRA, in 1998 and my uncle was executed. My village was destroyed by the rebels in the same year.
