Meet Bonito Ndayishimye, proud graduate of the Pi515 program and student at Iowa State University
"When I was in high School, I did not know what to do after I graduated. However, that changed after I joined Pi515. I was intrigued with programming and the resources Pi515 provided. I discovered new talents and my love for coding through this program. The different opportunities, experiences and skill sets I have gained while in the program will surely help me in my future career."
