Always lifting her voice and spirit in song, Nassozi Kimberly is a role model to younger students living through similar challenges.

Whether it’s singing or studying, Nassozi dedicates herself 100% to everything she does. When she grows up, Nassozi wants to be an architect. She comes from a family of four children, and her father is not in the picture. Her mother tries her best, but has no stable income. Nassozi Kimberly owes money for both this school year and the next. Despite these hardships, she stays upbeat and is driven by her desire to do well. Nassozi hopes to be a source of inspiration to other young people finding it hard to overcome the hurdles of tuition and family challenges.

When asked what kind of person she would like to be, Nassozi stated she wants “to be a strong person in the future, to be helpful, to be a great singer, to be a great architect. And I think that with the help and support, I’ll make my dreams come true.”

She also stated, “Without education, I can’t succeed.
