The practical knowledge that I have attained from studying, working, and living
in Uganda, a country so different from my own, has become invaluable in
shaping how I perceive my studies and future aspirations.
Although cliché, I know that this unique experience has already had and will have
a lasting, positive impact on my life and cannot be matched by anything else
that I have accomplished over the past four years of my undergraduate studies.
