At the age of eight, bullets shot past her head as her mother and youngest siblings piled into a car. Not enough room left for the rest of the family, Clementine and her brothers walked beside the vehicle as bombs exploded beside them. Bodies fell to the ground. Dead. You were lucky if you survived without a wound of some kind. With no time to stop and mourn those you love, the exodus from war-torn Rwanda was a chaotic and terrifying experience. Especially for a child like Clementine Bihiga. Clementine wrote Happily Broken; Discovering Happiness through Pain and Suffering not to preach to people, but to come beside them as a friend who cares—as a friend who has traveled through the fire and come out on the other side. Free. Does she have scars? Of course, but she’s here to tell you that scars can be beautiful. Pain and suffering can be beautiful if embraced with a full heart and genuine faith. 
Clementine (Igilibambe) Bihiga was born in Rwanda, Africa in 1986. At the age of 8 in 1994, Clementine and her family were forced to flee for their lives. Her family lived in multiple refugee camps and settlements before they finally settled in the USA in 1999 as refugees. 

Clementine, who speaks five languages, attended high school at Chaminade Jullienne Catholic High school in Dayton Ohio. She earned her Bachelors degree at the University of Dayton and her Graduate degree at Anna Maria College in Paxton, MA.

Clementine is married to Christopher who she met in the refugee settlements and together have one son Christon. Clementine's passion is inspirational public speaking. She started public speaking in college and traveled all over the nation to speak to colleges, high schools, business, conferences, etc. At the age of 8, Clementine started an incredible journey that would eventually change her and only realized this fact 20 years after.
