Ronald told this News website that at his inception at Makerere University though he was on government sponsorship, found it hard to move at the same pace with fellows in all activities at the University but this did not demoralize him, decided to remain focused.
“I got friends who understood my situation and would help me whenever I could call them upon”. He said.
He narrated that, started feeling the university and education then was his ultimate goal. In so doing one his lecturers/lady at all-time became his best friend through guidance, empowerment and necessary care.
He went on to tell us that Covid-19 period was his worst period through his journey as students were asked to earn online which gave him hard time thereby declining in performance in those particular semesters but improved in the following ones.
