I am Ssegujja Ashiraf a second year student of Dental surgery Makerere University Uganda. My home district is Masaka though currently living in kampala. I come from a family of 6 where am the first born, I have two brothers one of which dropped out of school due to financial reasons and one sister. For years now our family has been struggling to earn a living and trying to make ends meet. I am looking forward to becoming an Oral Maxilo Facial Surgeon one day in future after completing my degree. This will put me in a place where I will be able to make a fine addition towards the health sector in Uganda and also reach out to the many people and also give back and help out all my siblings.
My dream job is one that provides me with an opportunity to utilize all my skills and potential, giving me an opportunity to make a remarkably positive impact on people's lives and reduce the challenges in my community. To me that is being an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
Quite a number of things interest me. I like swimming, watching football, Sharing and interacting with others, listening to music (Jazz, Country), I like doing research work, Reading newly published medical literature, I like being part of focused groups as am a team player and lastly I enjoy seeing people getting better after treatment just like any other medical person.
