STRAIGHT TALK BURSARY GRADUATE MERCY

My name is Mercy Awino and I am of the  Ethur tribe from Abim district in the Karamoja region of Uganda.I recently graduated with a Second Class Upper from Makerere University where I studied a Bachelors degree in Laws. I am interested in international humanitarian law and rule of law and constitutionalism and hope to work with international human rights mechanisms and be part of policy formulation to strengthen state obligations to protect human rights and promote the rule of law. I am grateful to Straight Talk Uganda and the Irish Embassy for supporting my academic journey throughout my time at the university. The mentorship and financial help have been a big part of my success. I hope to inspire other girls from the Karamoja region, particularly from Abim district to pursue their dreams and never give up even in the face of challenges. Education is one of the surest ways to change society.
