Last week, we visited Kisubi Brothers University to catch up with Hadijja. It’s only been a few weeks since classes started, but she’s already loving her new environment. She explains that it’s so calm and quiet- she can really focus on her studies. Hadijja is planning to be a teacher in math and physics, and since those are also her favorite subjects, she’s loving her classes.
We visited on a national holiday, and since there was no work, Hadijja’s mentor, Aunt Jenifer, decided to come along as a surprise. She even brought gifts- a card signed by all the veterans at Sseko, and a bag of sugar, for tea. Hadijja’s face filled with an ear-to-ear grin at the sight of the woman who taught her so much and cared for her during her time at the Sseko workshop.
She was eager to show off her new campus, from the buildings to the lunch hall, and even her dormitory room, where she had a photo of her fellow University-bound Sseko graduates on display in the windowsill. So far, it’s been nothing but good reports about university life from our graduates, but Hadijja has a certain extra glow that makes it obvious she’s excited about the present and looking forward to the future. And Aunt Jenifer’s opinion? “I think that she’s doing very well!”
