Rita Ephrance Nabulya Namiiro

MBA 2023, Uganda

Ephrance Nabulya Namiiro

A strong-willed yet quiet individual, always taking a risk that seems to work out in the end. In my comfort zone, I would never have applied for a job in a top 4 consulting firm nor a degree at University of Kent. However, I live a life constantly challenging myself to do what others or I would consider impossible. I believe that life is a gift we get to experience everyday and should make the use of every opportunity given by God to reach for the moon. If you miss, you’ll land among the stars.
