Ssemagoye Umar.M

GENDER: Male

NATIONALITY: Ugandan

DISTRICT OF ORIGIN: Luwero

PROGRAMME: Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering

COLLEGE: College of Computing and Information Sciences

STUDY PERIOD: 2015 to 2019

BRIEF BIO ON SCHOLAR: 

Umar is the fifth born in the family of six children. His mother is the sole breadwinner in the family. Due heavy financial burden on the shoulders of a single mother, Umar’s academic journey nearly came to a halt. Luckily, The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Brac came to his rescue, when they offered him a scholarship. The Scholarship opportunity took him to East High School- Ntinda for his advanced level. He excelled in his final exams with 16 points in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. With this excellent performance, Umar scooped another Scholarship courtesy of The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University.  Today, Umar is a student of Software Engineering at Makerere University. He is looking forward to realising his vision of designing better programs to solve various Information Communication Technologies challenges facing the world and Africa in particular. He also plans to start a technology institution to improve on Technology and communication in Uganda. He is very grateful for the generous support rendered to him by The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program, for without it, his dream would have long been shattered.
