At 41, I am still figuring out life: my place in society, my career path, a family of my own, and many other things. Heck, with the exception of my new loving family, I am still trying to make friends in California; a place I moved to 3 years ago. I am currently in a Community College making up for the many lost years of school in Uganda (Africa). I intend to transfer to university hopefully next year and double major in History and English. I lead a very ordinary life; a normal day is spent doing school assignments, hiking with my husband, or reading. My favorite thing to do is to walk! Short walks or long walks it does not matter. Walking allows me to think about things – anything! My love of walking comes from where I grew up, a small village called Kaabong, located in the northeastern part of Uganda. It is still one of the most remote areas I will ever know, and can’t start comparing life there, to what it is like here in California. Walking was all I did while growing up! I walked for miles to school, to church, to the shops, to the borehole to fetch water, and to the market. My childhood was quite an adventure unlike any other, and wouldn’t change a thing. So now you understand why I love to walk!.
