BACKGROUND
My family consists of ten people, Mother, Father and eight siblings. I am the first born of five girls and three boys. Our father was a builder but unfortunately he experienced an accident at the beginning of this year and cannot work anymore. My mother is a tailor. In primary school I earned a partial scholarship as the best girl in class. My other siblings have had to drop out of school.
WHY Medicine & Health
I chose my field of study because it equips one with knowledge to take part in the testing and diagnosis of different diseases that mainly affect the people in my community. People live in unawareness and ignorance of the diseases they carry and only take a test if the condition is already out of control. Sometimes family members only get to know of a disease after their death. This opened my eyes to grow passionate about Medical Laboratory Science because testing and sensitizing one with the diseases can prevent it. How a disease is treated is key in everyone's life which is why I chose Medical Laboratory Science. I dream of working in a good and big research laboratory. I want to work on new methods of solving problems and inventing new procedures and test kits for the diagnosis of different diseases like HIV/ AIDS and sickle cell disease that mainly affect the people in my community.
INTERESTS
I love reading journals and publications, networking and collaborating with people. I am team player who likes working in a group and living together with people. I also love and support Arsenal.

What kind of community outreach activity are you planning to do this semester?

As changemakers, Atwine Elizabeth and I are intending to carry out a community awareness program. This will sensitise people in our community about the new Indian variant of COVID-19 disease which is deadly and hitting Uganda as a second wave of COVID-19. We shall encourage people in our community to adhere to the Standard Operating Procedures provided by the Ministry of health in order to reduce on the spread of the disease. The community awareness program will be carried out around our area of residence which is Taso village. We shall carry out the program on 27th May, 2021.

What worries you in the world and what can you do to change that?

What worries me the most in the world now is the unhealthy and reckless lifestyle people are living which causes their immunity to lower hence leading to quicker contraction and spread of disease. For example not eating a balanced diet and excessive use of drugs and alcohol, unhygienic practices like not washing hands after using a toilet or latrine..

There needs to be strict laws put by the government against drugs and alcohol abuse. There should be regular screening of all people to know those that are more susceptible to disease in order to protect them from the rampant spread of disease by government. The community leaders need to enforce general cleanliness of the villages and towns they lead by ensuring proper sanitation, good drainage systems and safe water sources. This will reduce on the number of infections in the community especially those that are caused by bacteria. Sensitation of the people so that they get to know of a healthy lifestyle for example eating a balanced diet, regular exercising and hygienic practices like washing hands after using a toilet or latrine.  I will always endeavor to keep my environment clean by regularly  making sure that I dispose off rubbish in the right places, picking rubbish  around my environment. I will also write charts reminding people in my community where the rubbish pits are, and also on toilets and latrines not to forget to wash their hands after every visit. I will also reach out to my community  members one on one giving them health tips so that they are aware of living better lives.

I am pruning the unwanted leaves from the bananas that we have at home for my parents since this work was mainly done by my mother while am at school. I also take care of the garden and the compound at home so that we have a clean environment as a change maker.

As laboratory students, the university took us for a study trip to Uganda Blood Transfusion Services at Nakasero Blood Bank. In the photo, I was able to engage in sorting donated blood from voluntary donors for further procedures. These include separation of plasma from blood, separation of platelets from plasma, how to get the cryoprecipitate and others.
