Olivier was born in the Western Province of Rwanda. He attended the National University of Rwanda and has been employed as a teacher. Most recently, Olivier participated in a nationwide training of primary and secondary school teachers in English Language Studies – a much needed skill set in Rwanda as the country tries to establish itself in the global economy and the English-speaking East Africa Community. Teachers across Rwanda are scrambling to meet the mandate to teach classes in English.
