Firoz and Najma Lalji Foundation Scholar
The origin of my interest in studying in a developed country, particularly at LSE, happened during my undergraduate studies back at home in Uganda. The relatively backward education concepts and teaching methodologies have made it inevitable that Ugandan education as a whole remains out of pace with international educational development – we were taught to be job seekers but not creators. The reason why I applied for graduate study at LSE was that it is a university with a time-honoured history and academic reputation in the world.
It is as a result of the impact of my scholarship that I want to become a development activist in Uganda immediately after my programme, mostly geared to helping vulnerable children fulfil their dreams of life.
