Program: Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication

How has the scholarship helped you in your course of study?
It has helped me in every way of my life and my education’s journey in general.

How would do you want to use your degree and why?
I want to be the best in journalism, reporting specifically on children’s and women’s issues affecting their humanity. I also want to be what God wants be to be in His Kingdom. I had a hard childhood that makes me cry often times. From surviving death, life on the streets, to living without parents, my life has been a very challenging journey to where I am at the university. I have learned to respect humanity,God, and appreciation to what is happening in the humanitarian sector, and I want to use my communication degree to report on what is happening in the humanitarian community. That is why I am studying journalism at UCU. I remember when I was a child I wanted to be President of Uganda. Now, and if God allows it, I want to represent the children on streets and tell my testimony.

What do you want to say to your sponsor?
Thank you and may God Bless you! You are my parents now and would love to meet you someday!
