People from different communities during their childhood had dreams of being pilots, doctors, presidents. As time passes by, a few have remained in their childhood area of interest while others have changed to other areas like education, security bodies among others. Shanita is among a few people whose interests in fashion haven’t changed.
Shemeza Shanita Kudiima is a first-year student at Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) pursuing a Bachelors of Procurement and Supply Chain Management.
Before joining MUST, she attended St Agnes Girls’ School in Bushenyi where she won the Miss Talent competitions beating six other contestants. This opened her doors into the fashion industry where she was contracted by Shantel Fashions to be on their team where she still works up to date.
“When I was young, I used to watch modeling shows. As I grew up, I found it interesting and felt like having it as my favorite. Having the support from my parents has strengthened me to work harder and make them feel happy,’’ she revealed.
Although models are being taken for granted by the public, Shanita has remained focused and prays to God that one day she will be one of the most influential models in Uganda and Africa at large. She believes that one day she will be crowned Miss Uganda and prove to the public that models are of great importance.
According to her, University life is all about determination and what you want to achieve.
“Campus life has so far been good though sometimes it’s hard to handle especially when it comes to balancing academics and social life. My simple advice to my fellow youths is to follow their dreams. Stick to them and achieving them will be easy,’’ Shanita advised.
In her free time, she prefers watching movies and reading novels, and socializing with friends
