As a teenager, Jesse Ntihemuka immigrated from Rwanda to the United States at the age of 14, in pursuit of his dream of playing in the NBA. When his body (through injuries) had other ideas for him, Jesse pivoted his mindset to pursue higher education. His college experience is coming to a close in the near future, and he is preparing to go pro within the intersections of finance and technology. In today’s episode, Jesse dives into his realities of being an immigrant in America pursuing his dreams.

When it comes to his goals, Jesse isn’t motivated by money or power. Instead, Jesse motivates himself with a positive mindset and the intention to create change. Whether it’s in basketball, his MBA program, or working as an intern, Jesse is deeply committed to showing up prepared and eager to learn. Starting a career is nerve-wracking, but Jesse is optimistic about the future of technology and his role in improving the quality of life for his family in Rwanda.
