Sharon Mbabazi, a graduate from Mutesa I Royal University, who studied while laying bricks to get money for her tuition, is smiling from ear to ear, after getting s scholarship for her Masters degree from Victoria University.
Mbabazi will join Victoria University Kampala during the March 2020 Intake, following the scholarship that will be partially sponsored by the Ruparelia Foundation.
Mbabazi graduated last week with a degree in Mass Communication.
Pictures of her making bricks in mud-spattered clothes at Masooli, Wakiso district to raise school fees quickly made the rounds and touched hearts of people on Social Media, some who contributed funds for her education.
But she has since become a celebrated academician after the Ruparelia Foundation granted her a Scholarship to pursue a Master’s in Public Management & Administration (MPAM) from Victoria University, Kampala.
While receiving her scholarship from the University Vice Chancellor Prof. Krishna N. Sharma, Mbabazi thanked Dr Sudhir Ruparelia, Rajiv Ruparelia and Naiya Ruparelia, the directors of Ruparelia Foundation, for giving her an opportunity to advance her education.
