Clemantine Wamariya is just 6 when with her older sister Claire she is separated from her family in war torn Rawanda, and for the next six years, they manage to survive through staying with family, sleeping rough and staying in refugee camps. It is pretty hard to imagine how two young girls were able to survive such hardships, with no money or contact with their family.
We also get to hear of how six years later and being able to immigrate to the US, Clemantine is able to start her schooling and head off to University after arriving with limited English and no early schooling as a child. You have to admire her determination to succeed and do well for so well for herself. 3/5
