Sharon Mbabazi, a fresh graduate from Mutesa 1 Royal University was last year profiled for paying tuition through brick laying. The latest coming in indicates that the hard working lady has started her own furniture business on top of financing the construction of her new home.
While appearing on NTV last evening, Mbabazi confessed that her life has changed for the better and she is optimistic that her family will be one of the most powerful families in Kasangati and Wakiso at large.
Mbabazi also revealed that she received a lot of financial support from well-wishers following a story that Campus Bee published. The formerly financially struggling young lady revealed that she has also set up a permanent house on top of her already booming furniture business.
“I was helped financially, others gave me tuition, while some people helped me with advice and to be honest our lives changed forever. I thought that if I kept the money, I would be tempted to waste it and that’s why I decided to start up a furniture shop.” Mbabazi narrates.
Mbabazi also revealed that she has faced a lot of challenges especially from people who think she has a lot of money. Apparently, her landlord forcefully took part of their land after failing to pay the demanded amount of money in a bid to secure a land title.
“He thought we have a lot of money and we would pay whatever amount he wanted. He asked a lot of money which we dint get and in the end part of our land was taken.” Mbabazi added.
While wrapping up the interview, Mbabazi vowed to uplift her family’s status as well as pursuing her professional career (Mass Communication) in the next five years.
