Diana Berocwiny (2009 ISSRPL)

I am Berocwiny Diana, currently a student at Uganda Martyrs University-Nkozi, pursuing a degree in Ethics and Development studies. I am a girl of substance with potentiality and belief in hope over fear and grace over misfortune guided by humility right in the heart. My pride comes from the fact that I can ‘achieve’ a lot today that many think of ‘doing’ tomorrow and make the ‘little’ that people take for granted ‘big’. And all that shapes me is my ultimate appreciation for Education and Life at most.
