Peter was born and raised in Bwoga, Uganda. Today, Peter holds a Master of Arts degree in International Economics and Finance from Brandeis University as well as both master’s and bachelor’s degrees in mathematics from Western Kentucky University. Having grown up in a rural village and being able to come to the United States and attain his degrees, Peter witnessed how economic development impacts differences in one’s quality of life. Peter also realized how fortunate he has been, and as a result, he would like to give back and improve the quality of life in Bwoga through education. For him, the key to education is reading books at a young age. Reading produces knowledge, which—he believes–leads to the empowerment of all citizens.
