BRIEF BIO ON SCHOLAR

Sam is the first born in the family of seven children. He has four brothers and two Sisters. The father is a police officer, and the mother is a peasant farmer. Owing to the meagre income of his parents, they could not afford to support Sam and his siblings in School. Luckily he was offered a Scholarship by The MasterCard Foundation at Brac, which enabled him to attend Our Lady of Africa Secondary School in Mukono for his High School education. He excelled in his final exams in 2014, and was offered yet another Scholarship, courtesy of The MasterCard Foundation at Makerere University. At Makerere, owing to his love for nature and the environment, he decided to pursue Conservation Biology as his line of training. He strongly believes that the knowledge he is acquiring will enable him to change he negative attitude people have in conserving the environment. He is a proud Scholar of The MasterCard Scholars Program.
