New Jersey-born Patrice Dorrall has dedicated her life to education. In her early 20s, she taught kindergarten and later set up two schools in Minnesota: Pressing Toward the Mark Christian Academy, a primary school for children aged 5-11; and then LoveWorks Academy, a community-driven public-arts school for ages 5-13. A chance encounter after a 2012 volunteer trip to Rwanda resulted in an opportunity for Patrice to take over the struggling vocational school White Dove Global Prep (formerly White Dove Girls School) in Kigali. She accepted and has since transformed the Rwandan school into a holistic college prep high school with an ESTEAM (Empowerment through Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics) approach. It has been a difficult road with plenty of challenges, but Patrice remains steadfast in her vision of putting Rwandan girls in charge of their futures through education.
