We always love to share good news about ASSET students! Sophia N, a current Social Sciences student at Makerere University in Kampala has launched her own successful jewelry-making business. In addition to pursuing full-time studies, she designs, makes and sells innovative jewelry using locally-available materials. She sells her products directly to clients as well as to craft market vendors and takes custom orders as well. She has been so successful that she has garnered attention for her work and has been invited to attend an arts exhibition, the Love World Festival of Music and Art, in South Africa and Ghana and received a grant to fund her travels.
We admire Sophia’s entrepreneurial spirit, eye for design, and confidence. We are very proud of her! Join us in wishing her success!
