Kuto was born in Rwanda and grew up surrounded by poverty and violence. His parents were stern with him, and he was always expected to work hard. As a result, Kuto developed a strong work ethic. He also learned how to fight early on in life, as he often had to defend himself against other kids who wanted to take his food or belongings.
When Kuto was sixteen, the Rwandan genocide began. He witnessed firsthand the horrific atrocities that were being committed against his people. He saw family members and friends killed, houses destroyed, and lives shattered. The violence left him feeling angry and hardened.
After the genocide ended, Kuto decided to leave Rwanda and start fresh somewhere else. He eventually made his way to America, where he found work as a janitor at an elementary school. It wasn’t the most glamorous job, but it allowed him to provide for himself and stay out of trouble.
Despite all that he had been through in his life, Kuto still held onto some hope for the future; hope that one day things would be better for him and for humanity as a whole .
