By the time I was the age of nine before joining grade four, I started walking at least three miles to go to  school in another district (at least three hours). This was due to the fact Bwoga elementary lacked  adequate facilities to accommodate all the potential pupils, moreover, it only reached grade six at the  time, yet to join high school one had to finish grade seven. This was most difficult part of my education— because walking all these miles every day would wear me out and by the time I returned home in the  evening, I would be extremely tired and at times unable do my homework well. But this would later earn  a place in one of the top high schools, which was a boarding school. At this point, I never had to walk,  and it gave me a chance to spend sleepless nights reading and training. A blessing in disguise at the end of  my high school, I was given a full athletics scholarship to attend Western Kentucky University.  

Reflecting on my experiences growing up and being able to come to the USA for higher education, I’m reminded how incredibly fortunate I have been, unlike others who did not have my resources and motivation to study. It urged me to make trips to Uganda most of my summer to teach science classes especially mathematics and inspire kids. This has led me to believe that life is about creating a positive impact and working for the betterment of the whole world.
