Aisha Nabukeera was among the 1024 students who graduated on Friday at Mukono based Uganda Christian University (UCU).
Nabukeera graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and Social Administration (SWASA).
Aisha came into the lime light in 2006 when her step mother burnt her while in Masaka and her plight was brought to the general public by social entrepreneur and motivational speaker Frank Gashumba who later adopted her and picked her from Masaka and brought her to his Manson in Buziga.
Nabukeera, after her step mother’s gruesome act, had to undergo three surgeries to regain her burnt skin. She would later join City Parents Primary School, at the age 13 and was able to score Aggregate 14 in 2008’s Primary Leaving Exams.
She later acquired a sponsorship from the late Lawrence Mukiibi of the St Lawrence Schools for her secondary.
In 2009, she started senior one at Horizon College of St Lawrence and it is from there that she successfully completed her Senior Four, scoring Aggregate 31 and later joined London College of St. Lawrence where she did her A’ level.
From there she joined UCU and it’s from that on Friday she finally graduated.
Her adopted father,Frank Gashumba couldn’t hide his excitement on Friday upon Nabukeera’s success,he ran to his social media platform and posted thus; “Congratulations Aisha Nabukeera!
In 2007, certain hyenas based on Super FM, owned by Peter Ssematimba said this day will never come! How I wish I would see your faces now!
