UGANDA - Maureen Nakayiza, who emerged as Kyambogo University’s best overall student in the recent graduation ceremony, has overcome adversity to reach this honor.

The 22-year-old former Information and Technology student scored a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of 4.83 out of 5.0.

Nakayiza lost her father, Kasujja, in an accident in 2008. Out of this tragedy, she dedicated herself to bettering herself through education so that she could later help her family.

“Since then, I realized I needed to work hard because life was becoming hard. I was driven by the desire to take care of my siblings and my mum, people who have always been there for me in all times,” she says.

Nakayiza envisions herself as an IT professor who will help transform Uganda’s economy into a better one. Her friends know her as a hard working person, obedient and respectful.
