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.
