I grew up in Kampala-Uganda. I started my professional life in 2000 as a human service/social scientist and customer service representative.
By 2011, I was an Executive Director ofAwakening Smiles Initiative a non profit organization, taking care of over 1800 very poor and special needs children, women and the elderly in Uganda, managing a number of big complex projects and programs and a counselor. This non profit organization was under funded and working to keep up meant multi tasking with roles since the organization couldn't afford to pay extra professional staff.
I had to take computer classes.
Being a full time mum, wife and working under pressure, i took online courses every chance I got. Youtube, Udemy and others.
Then a magical thing happened. I discovered my love for computers, for Information technology.
I started to volunteer to train others every chance I got in order to become an expert at it. Soon I was volunteering in ASI to do all systems jobs, buying, fixing, upgrading computers and networking and later became a Linux systems administrator at Golden Imaging center in January 2016. In 2019 I landed a devOps engineer role and have continued to learn, train, advance, be better and enjoy the IT profession since.
As such, I am an IT professional and a Human Service professional.
