In Summer 2021, she interned with SCAN Health Plan, a medicare advantage insurance company based Long Beach, California, as a strategy intern. During her time at SCAN Health Plan, Ariane immersed herself in a project aiming to find different ways to differentiate SCAN from other medicare advantage plans that delivered senior services in the same region. Ariane also studied abroad at University of Essex to further her studies.

Before she joined SHE-CAN and came to the U.S., Ariane was part of the debate club, leader and founder of Spartans club and head-girl at her secondary school. She also interned at Roots, Inc., a South Africa based organization that aims to educate the people of Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and South Africa on how to tackle real-life challenges through the screening of influential movies and documentaries. Ariane hopes to use her U.S degree to sustain Rwanda’s development initiatives.
