Joan is a student at Makerere University – Kampala, Uganda. She is in the second year of a 4-year Bachelor of Commerce program and is a very hard-working student. After her bachelor’s degree, Joan hopes to pursue professional certification by the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS).
She is interested in international development work and hopes to specifically focus her career on helping women and children. Joan is one of six children. Her parents have worked hard to put her through high school but are unable to see her through university due to their limited resources.
In the past, Joan has on occasion had to borrow from friends and family to make her tuition payments and even then, the payments were delayed and Joan’s attendance and performance suffered.
