Meet Successor

IMG_5338

About: Successor is the third born of seven children, and perhaps it’s that classic middle-child syndrome that gives her a little extra spunk. She’s already warming up to the camera in our Sseko photoshoots! Her younger sister shares that same energy, and keeps Successor entertained with funny stories about the people she meets. Her father is a driver, and her mother stands as an example and role-model for her because she has overcome troubles without blaming circumstances. Successor has also overcome the challenge of finding money for school fees, and advises others to never give up. “A journey of 1,000 miles starts with one step,” she quotes. She loves to read adventure novels and love stories, and some of her favorite activities include walking around to explore new places and make new friends.

Future Goals and Plans: Successor is interested in the tribal conflicts in Sudan and Kenya, and sees domestic violence and unemployment for women as some of the biggest challenges facing women in Uganda. With so many of her interests focused on people, it should come as no surprise that Successor hopes to study social sciences and humanities in university.

Successor’s favorite part about working at Sseko is the way she is able to gain new knowledge and wisdom.“I’ve learned new skills and I’ve learned to work alongside women who are older than me. I enjoy talking with them and our time sharing experiences together.” She looks up to Grace Sr. for the way she is raising her children, making sure they get an education. “She’s a good mother, her kids are happy and they love her very much.” Successor also admires Auntie Jennifer for her strength, the most obvious showcase of that strength is the way she raised all eight of her children on her own after her husband passed away.

The challenge of finding money to pay for school fees is quite common in Uganda. Successor tells us, “That was the greatest challenge I’ve ever faced. I didn’t think there was any hope.” To overcome this challenge, Successor worked with her mom to earn some of the money she needed and was able to pay the rest of her fees with a scholarship to received for being the top of her class.

We're so excited to share that Successor will be starting at the University at Makerere this fall to begin her study of the Social Sciences. To announce her admission to Makerere, she wrote a letter to her team! This is for you, Team Successor!

Our US team caught up with Successor in April of this year and got to learn a little more about her! Successor is 20 years old from the Kabale district of Southwestern Uganda which is known for being cold and mountainous. Successor is eager to study social sciences and humanities in University because she wants to “Work with the lowest class people, those who have nothing and who think they can not make it. Those who do not believe their future is bright.”
