We’re excited to introduce you to Successor, one of the 11 young women who will work with Sseko for the next 9 months while earning an income for university in the fall!
Successor is the third born of seven children, and perhaps it’s that classic middle-child syndrome that gives her a little extra spunk. She’s already warming up to the camera in our Sseko photoshoots! Her younger sister shares that same energy, and keeps Successor entertained with funny stories about the people she meets.
Her father is a driver, and her mother stands as an example and role-model for her because she has overcome troubles without blaming circumstances. Successor has also overcome the challenge of finding money for school fees, and advises others to never give up. “A journey of 1,000 miles starts with one step,” she quotes. She loves to read adventure novels and love stories, and some of her favorite activities include walking around to explore new places and make new friends.
Successor is interested in the tribal conflicts in Sudan and Kenya, and sees domestic violence and unemployment for women as some of the biggest challenges facing women in Uganda. With so many of her interests focused on people, it should come as no surprise that Successor hopes to study ethics and human rights in university.
