Leadership Summit 2017: Immaculee Ilibagiza

Immaculee Ilibagiza is a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide that took the lives of nearly one million Tutsi, including her entire family except for one brother. She survived by huddling silently with seven other women in a 3-by-4 foot bathroom for 91 days. Despite unimaginable suffering, she committed herself to a life of peace, hope and forgiveness. Ilibagiza works with the United Nations and is the best-selling author of Left to Tell.

  • I learned to forgive, but more importantly I learned the joy of forgiveness and that forgiveness is possible in every situation
  • To know without a shadow of a doubt that God is real and that when you can’t He can
  • And whatever God tells you, He’s right
  • The genocide happened because we failed to love one another
  • I can’t change other people but I can change myself
  • When things get bad…they can get worse
  • Complaining doesn’t help things get any better
  • In times of crisis you will hear all kinds of voices and you will have to choose the right voice to listen to
