Gloria Namugerwa’s greatest talent is making people smile with her dancing. Shaking her arms to the music, Gloria tells us that she loves to see other people playing and having fun. At school, however, she displays a more serious side – her favorite subject is science. Gloria talks excitedly about her school friends and her plans to become a business owner. When she becomes an entrepreneur, she would like to sell clothes to people in the community to make them feel beautiful.

Gloria’s mother died when she was young, so now Gloria and her brother live with their elderly grandparents. She contributes significantly to her household by fetching water, cleaning, and planting in the garden. In her free time, Gloria enjoys playing netball.
