Please tell us a little about yourself: 

I started university in 2013, pursuing a Bachelors degree in food science, and started in coffee that same year. I enrolled for an internship in my second year at Uganda Coffee Development Authority, gaining interest in barista skills, before competing and winning the 2015 inter-university competiton. I finished school, continued with my career, and I’m now the Uganda Barista Champion, and working as the head of coffee at Great Lakes Roastery.
