  20. BRIEF JOURNEY TO MY EDUCATION AND HINDERANCES/ OBSTACLES/CONSTRAINTS:
    Am Tuhaise Frank born on 17/03/1993 , in former Kibaale district Midwestern Uganda that was divided into three new districts such as Kagadi, Kakumiro and Kibaale , currently am in Kagadi district, my education has been because of perseverance, commitment and mercy from God and my well-wishers who have directed me and supported me at all stages.
    Status of my parents; my father died in 1999 and mother in 2003, we were left six siblings and am the second born, this was a disaster because we were still young and most of the property that was available was taken by the so called uncles whom they left to make us grow “ bakuza” , These individuals left us , denied us all the rights not until all the property was over and they disappeared , up to now ,I have never received any item/ gift from my uncles neither salt. Joining the university was a great achievement because my elder brother stopped in senior two and am here to act as an example because I came from zero.
    I completed primary seven in 2005 under the care of the school head teacher because he expected me to get a first grade but I scored 13 points after I joined Rena academy hoima, I was told to sell firewood so as to raise money for school fees but it could not manage. I was advised by my former teacher to repeat primary seven in 2007 so as I join universal secondary education in 2008 , I accepted and scored 9 points, I joined Mabaale secondary school in 2008 for senior one and life was hard because I had no parent, I could attend two days a week and the rest I would be in my garden, one time my math teacher took me to the deputy head teacher so that they can suspend me because of being ever absent after scoring 70/70 in his exam , the deputy knew my status and told him to leave me. The teacher put a punishment that every time am absent three sticks. Time for senior four came and I had no one to support me, The teacher told me that if I have a mattress I should come to the dormitory and study for free unfortunately I didn’t have it and I had no one to request to buy for me , I just shared a mattress with a friend ,fortunately I passed with a first grade of 29 aggregates in 2011, 2012 I became stuck because I had no one to advise me on what to do, most people could advise me to join the technical school and others primary teachers college but I had no money, I went to teach at Talent junior school in wangeyo kibaale district were we had agreed to be paid 120,000/= only Ugandan shillings per month but I was paid 50,000/= per month , I worked there for three month and up to now my balance has never been paid, 2012 I joined advanced lever at Mandela ss hoima for senior five and six and scored 17 points doing mathematics , economics and geography plus general paper and computer, in 2015 I joined MAKERERE UNIVERSITY pursuing a bachelor degree of science in quantitative economics and lastly my ambitious and passion is to complete master’s degree and give back to my community for their contribution towards my education and the only constraint is poverty and being parentless.
