“So many girls around the world—refugee girls in particular—suffer in silence after being sexually assaulted by someone they know. Most rapes happen at the hands of a relative or friend, not a stranger. I want girls to know that they have the power to speak out. They don’t have to stay quiet. No matter what culture or country you are from, there will always be pressure to remain silent, to never tell. But you don’t have to protect sexual predators. By speaking up, you are standing up for yourself. And you might be preventing it from happening again. Tell people what happened. The predators expect you to stay silent. You can prove them wrong.”
Sandra Uwiringiyimana, How Dare the Sun Rise: Memoirs of a War Child

“Anyone who thinks it’s easy to get to the States as a refugee has no idea.”
Sandra Uwiringiyimana, How Dare the Sun Rise: Memoirs of a War Child

“There is something incredibly relaxing about Africa to me. Americans are always moving, always going somewhere, even if they have nothing important to do when they get there. In Africa, you’re generally home with your family, telling stories, making fun of one another, laughing.”
Sandra Uwiringiyimana, How Dare the Sun Rise: Memoirs of a War Child
