Dusuman Rhoda Class of 2018 - "light of the nation"

My Background

  • I am 18 years old
  • I am from Matheing Village in Jonglei State, South Sudan
  • I am a member of the Dinka tribe
  • I am determined to make my family proud
  • My mother heard about LASS at church and encouraged me to apply

My Story

My LASS family is helping me through my biggest challenge which is discrimination. There is a lot of diversity here, and it has fostered positive unity among the students. I am in the Esther care group and we are all from different tribes, yet we are united. We have a lot of fun together. This care group has definitely made me more social. My vision for South Sudan is that the country will be transformed by good leadership who will win over the support of the masses and unify the population.

In our leadership classes, we are learning to serve others and not to expect the same treatment from them, and that a good leader is kind, patient, polite, caring and exemplary – I recognize Noah as having these qualities.

South Sudan needs Godly leaders. Famine, corrupt leaders and tribalism are creating the great unrest in South Sudan. My vision for South Sudan is that the country will be transformed by good leadership who will win over the support of the masses and unify the population. - Dusuman, July 2017

My favorite Bible verse is John 3:16-17 because it depicts Jesus as the source of life: " God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through him." - Dusuman, July 2017

"Having supporters to assist me in my school finances will enable me to achieve my dream, I greatly appreciate them. My prayers are for peace, family and LASS." - Dusuman, July 2017
