KIU, Main Campus: As Kampala International University readies to release another batch of graduands into a world dominated by unemployed youth, Ritah Nagujja a student preparing for graduation on Saturday, has urged fellow graduands to attain skills apart from the courses they pursued at university.
Striving against all odds to complete her diploma in Public Relations despite the hindrances of the COVID-19-induced lockdown, Nagujja is happy and excited to finally start a brand new chapter in the working society.
As she plans to seek for already scarce jobs no matter how long it takes, Nagujja revealed that she is not worried about being jobless after university because she does photography as a side hustle, and hopes to earn a living through the side hustle.
Since things involving designing and art were the things she treasured most, Nagujja decided to join photography and videography, an opportunity that was presented by an organization called Touch the Slum Namuwongo which offered free services to the youths in Namuwongo.
Narrating how important a side skill is for fellow graduands and continuing students, Nagujja has advised her fellows to never give up, trust in God, and to atleast have a skill apart from the course they are accomplishing.
