Viola Bazanye

Makerere University Scholarship Recipient

I am very passionate about using technology to improve the lives of people less fortunate than me. I am a Ugandan and completing my internship with Orange Uganda Ltd (one of the most competitive telecommunication service providers in Uganda). I just completed my 4th year pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering. I have experience in marketing, Value Added Services & Corporate Social Responsibility. I am a programmer / mobile applications developer with skills in Android, Java, J2ME, python and web development. In my spare time, I love to watch movies and listen to music.

“Living in a third-world country such opportunities for girls are highly unlikely which limits and discourages them from pursuing careers in computing.
