Gloria is the first born daughter of subsistence farmers who struggled with poverty to bring her up together with her three siblings. As the first born, Gloria always knew that it was her duty to set a perfect example through studying albeit the challenging circumstances. She attended Ngai Primary School and achieved 28 aggregates at Primary Leaving Examinations; a score that was fair enough considering the difficult circumstances she endured including attending school on an empty stomach due to lack of food at home.

She proceeded with the help of well-wishers at Kigumba Intensive High School, where she attained 39 aggregates at Uganda Certificate of Education and completed Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education with 13 points. Her persistence and hard work paid off when MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University made Gloria’s dream of a becoming a professional agriculturalist come true, when they offered her a scholarship to pursue higher education. She believes that she can uplift the backward forms of agriculture in her community since modern agriculture can significantly help in the fight against poverty.
