Coding my way into a future of ‘weird technology’

“I'M CODING,” said her sibling, something that puzzled her. She always thought that coding only happened in the movies. 

Maria Tuhirirwe started her “serious” coding career in April 2021 with the EDU classes after failing to get a balance between normal school studies in Senior three (S3) and coding, way back in 2018. 

Her zeal for becoming an inventor compared to Law and Medicine professions that her friends always dreamed of drew her interest in the direction of coding. 

“Five weeks later, my life has completely changed! I can code”.

I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Kyambogo University over 7 years ago. Finding a job was quite hard because there was not much I could do with the skills I’d gained.

Currently, I am a teacher of Computer literacy at a Primary School in Nansana but I’ve always wanted to be more than this. I have always dreamed of being a programmer. I tried self teaching but it was quite frustrating. I felt like I would learn better with people.
