Human Rights and Sustainable Development Advocate
Maguy Lumu’s work has been dedicated to finding ways to provide access to economic development in rural communities across the Congo.
After graduating from the University of California, Los Angeles, Maguy moved back to her home country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where she started an agricultural development project called “Congo’s Green Fields Initiative”. The program uses revenues from local farms to fund various educational opportunities for young women. The program currently offers different types of professional training to women in the rural areas of Congo including alphabetization, driving, sewing, and computer science. Maguy then worked as a consultant for agricultural investments in Congo’s first major lobbying firm, BM Partners, where she supervised the implementation of numerous investment initiatives between the Congo and other countries. She also worked at the Constitutional Court of the Congo as a legal analyst where she sharpened her research skills and reaffirmed her passion for legal work.
Beyond Law School
Outside of the classroom, Maguy enjoys traveling abroad and learning about new cultures. She is a movie fanatic and regularly watches new movies and television shows. She considers herself to be a foodie and is always in search of a new trendy restaurant nearby.
