After a weekend full of new experiences, it was time to start school. Attending classes at Archbishop Kiwanuka Secondary was incredible. At first, I was anxious , I didn’t know anyone from my class and was nervous about meeting my new Ugandan peers. However, as soon I walked into class, I was welcomed by a group of girls that wanted to get to know me. Ugandan students were happy to see me and help me around, some of them were a little shy, but as the week went by they opened up to me.
I bonded with my Ugandan peers and created great friendships. Everyday we talked for hours about our similarities and differences. I became aware of the luxurious life I’m living in Ireland and was upset that my Ugandan friends don’t have the same opportunities. All of them inspire me, due to their enthusiasm towards education and spectacular talents. In school, they all accepted me for who I am and made me feel comfortable. I adored them for being so raw and straight forward with everything. During the week of school I realised that I’m a lucky teenager and I should be more grateful for what I have. I had a wonderful time in Archbishop Kiwanuka Secondary School, I hope all my Ugandan friends will reach their goals and will continue being so ambitious and amazing.
