Liberatus J. Rwebugisa

I go by the short name Libe (pronounced as Lee-bay). This is my 3rd semester on campus and first time on the GSA Council serving on the Service Committee and the University Technology Council. Living in Reno has been a tremendous experience and as part of getting involved, learning and serving; I am glad and excited to represent the graduate students from the College of Education. Currently, I am studying for my Master's Degree in the Educational Leadership Department and I plan to pursue a PhD in the same program. I am passionate about fostering quality education, community empowerment, effective leadership and democracy as my long-term career and research goals. I come from Tanzania and aspire to go back and work as an academic faculty, a public educator and a leader. I hold a B.A. (Hons.) in Geography and Environmental Studies from the University of Dar es Salaam. Before coming to Reno for graduate studies, I worked as a Plan Vivo Assistant Coordinator for the Voluntary Community Carbon Project and volunteered at local schools. I am also interested in environmental protection as well as youth, women and children's welfare. As result, I use my free time volunteering for EcoFamily and YHAD, the two NGOs that I co-founded. We are happy to welcome friends, volunteers, partners and social entrepreneurs who are interested in visiting Tanzania to enjoy the great weather and beautiful environment, meet lovely people and be part of the diverse culture while contributing to the development of local communities and various organizations. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email ("I value the freedom to serve more than the power to rule." -- Antonio Meloto
