BRIEF BIO ON SCHOLAR: 

Lillian is the first born in the family of five. She lost her father at a tender age, which left her and her siblings in the hands of a peasant single mother. Through a lot of hardships and financial challenges the mother managed to support her through primary education.

When she had lost hope of accessing secondary education, The MasterCard Foundation at Brac, came to her rescue, she was offered a scholarship, and with it, she joined Hana Mixed secondary school for both her O’ and A’level, where she excelled her final exams in 2014.

Lady luck smiled at her, when yet again The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University offered her a scholarship to study at Makerere University.

She is currently pursuing a Bachelor of commerce degree, in which she hopes to become a prominent business person, and use her businesses to help the poor in her community and the country as a whole. She is forever grateful to The MasterCard Foundation for giving her an opportunity to pursue her dream.
