Joyful Clemantine Wamariya is a storyteller, public speaker, and human rights advocate. Born in Kigali, Rwanda, and displaced by conflict, Clemantine migrated throughout seven African countries as a child. At age 12, she was granted refugee status in the United States and went on to receive a BA in Comparative Literature from Yale University. Clemantine now uses stories drawn from her experiences to catalyze change and create community.
Her memoir, The Girl Who Smiled Beads: A Story of War and What Comes After, is a New York Times bestseller and a testament to the power of seized opportunities. She is committed to creating platforms that allow individuals from diverse demographic backgrounds to build relationships and exchange ideas.
