Tito Kuol

Freshman at Harvard College, South Sudan Native

Tito is a 22 year old freshman at Harvard University from South Sudan. He was born in a village with no school, and with no means of access to education. Under his older brothers’ influence, he because a refugee at age 9 as a means to get an education in Kenya. Through a winding road he has found his way to Harvard. Tito’s story is inspiring, but as he succinctly put, he does not need his story to help himself, but he does need his story to help him do what it is he wants to do – start a school in his own village in South Sudan. Tito wants to make sure that no youth in South Sudan need to leave their home to get educated, and he is currently on a mission to find out how he can make that a reality.
