Against All Odds: Memoirs of Resilience, Determination, and Luck Amidst Hardship for an African Girl-Child in Her Passionate Pursuit for
This is a true story about a girl-child who was orphaned and raised in the most neglected area of Uganda at that timeKaramoja. Her greatest dream was to get an education, but she had to go through so many heartbreaking obstacles to achieve that dream. The girl-child grew up in settings that are unknown to those in the urban backgrounds, in a region that was a no-go area for the non-natives then. Amidst poverty and in a culture where girl-child education is not a priority, she managed to get to a university, and of all, Makerere University, the oldest and premier institution of higher learning in East Africa. The book is characterized by grit, resilience, and determination. The author clearly brings out the ordeals she went through to gain an education in an environment that is not friendly to a girl-child, worse still for an orphan.
