Every year organizations struggle to bounce back from challenges and disruption.
Every year, there are organizations that don’t turn their adversity into massive growth.

Your people don’t just need ordinary resilience.
They need…

AUTHENTIC Resilience.

Meet Dr. Clementine

What is Authentic Resilience?

Authentic Resilience is not merely about enduring challenges; instead, it involves emerging stronger and more genuine from them. Unlike conventional resilience, which typically focuses on bouncing back, Authentic Resilience is about ‘bouncing forward’ to a new level of growth.

From Refugee Camps to World Stages

Clementine not only started the AFRIKA Club in college, but she also held positions of leadership in other groups.

Her internship at the New York State Attorney General’s office and involvement with the United Nations as an Agent of Change demonstrated her dedication to making a difference.

Clementine’s life narrative is one of tremendous perseverance and tenacity, shaped by the horrific memories of fleeing war-torn Rwanda at the age of eight.

Instead of succumbing to the difficulties of a refugee’s existence for the following five years, she assumed the responsibilities of an adult-like child.

Her odyssey did not end there; rather, it was just getting started. Clementine encountered new obstacles when she arrived in the United States in 1999, including dealing with the stigma of being viewed as “different” and dealing with bullying in high school.

Nonetheless, rather than allowing adversity to define her, she used it as fire for her unwavering motivation.

Clementine’s life was handed another blow when she tragically lost her daughter, Clarette. She turned her suffering into purpose by establishing the Clarette Refugee Fund, which is dedicated to providing education to young refugees.

Clementine is distinguished not just by her tremendous achievements, but also by her persistent capacity to turn adversity into motivation.

Her speaking career, which began in college, has brought her all over the world, where she has shared her experience and inspired many people, Audiences benefit not only from a compelling survivor’s story but also from the empowering message that any challenge, no matter how difficult, can lead to life-changing gratitude and character growth.

Clementine’s energizing personality creates an immersive experience that leaves a lasting impression on all who hear her speak.
