Meet Shakira

IMG_5260

About: Shakira lives near Kampala with her mother and three siblings, but notes that her family is of Nubian origin, not from Uganda. She loves wearing bold prints in simple designs, reading for fun, and spending time with her friends. Shakira gets along easily with most people, and seeks out fun, happy moments. Despite that, she also watches a lot of horror films- while munching on chili flavored snacks. The scariest movie she’s seen is One Missed Call. She also enjoys adventure and exploring new places, and hopes to one day get to Switzerland to see the sights and learn more about its neutral and stable history. She looks up to her mother, and the strength she has shown in every situation. When things get tough, Shakira likes to remind herself that, “for every successful man, there are very many unsuccessful years.”

Future Plans: In school, Shakira’s favorite subjects are literature and geography, and she hopes to go on to study art at the university level- specifically design. “One thing that makes me love art- I love nature,” she explains. “I love everything about nature. So maybe if I can put it toward design, something can come out of it.”

Shakira headed off to University! She embarked off to pursue her dreams. Her first step... starting at Makerere university pursuing her degree in psychology!
