26 – Uganda
What Are You Most Passionate About?
I am passionate about helping people in need, mostly refugees. As a former refugee I saw the struggle and pain that refugees face and decided to give back as much as I can.
Who Is Your Hero? Why?
My mother was my hero. She made me the person I am today. Even when life was hopeless she always encouraged me and showed me that things will be okay no matter the situation.
What Is Your Favorite Sound?
l love the morning birds sounds. they alway remind me the days I use to visit my grand parents.
What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?
How would a laptop help you?
A new, working laptop would allow me to continue work with the grassroots organizations I serve. Through social media and VOIP services I can help these people in their time of need connect with friends and family and through presentation software I’ll be able to create lively lesson plans for my students. Should I receive multiple computers, I would be able to actually share these crucial tools with these people to give them a leg up on the challenges to come.
What do you love about this project?
The knowledge that giving people access to a transformative tool like a computer and the impact it has on their lives.
What Languages do you speak?
English, French, Swahili, Lingala, Mashi and Luganda
Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
