KIU Main Campus – Usama Sserwadda will be one of the students graduating at KIU’s 27th Graduation ceremony on June 17 but he is no ordinary graduand.
He has attained a first-class degree and he says he doesn’t plan on stopping at this milestone.
“I intend to pursue further education, such as a master's or even a doctoral degree, Insha Allah , in order to deepen my knowledge in communications field and to prepare for a career in academia,” Sserwadda says.
And he says he intends to use his skills in research, analysis, and communication to advocate for policy changes that promote social justice and equality for societal change.
“As a mass communication graduate, I intend to change society by using the skills and knowledge gained to create and disseminate information that promotes social justice and equality,” he says.
“I could also use social media platforms to amplify the voices of marginalized communities and raise awareness about important social issues. For example, I could create and share stories, videos, or other content that sheds light on the experiences of people who are often overlooked or discriminated against,” he adds.
Sserwadda says he has attained a first-class degree in Mass Communication by developing effective study habits, setting clear goals, and staying focused and motivated throughout his academic journey.
He has a word of thanks for some people who have helped him throughout his course.
“I would also like to thank my mother Ndagire Salima and my sister Nasuuna shabirah, for the financial and moral support they have rendered towards me especially during my course at Kampala International University,” ha says.
Sserwadda advises his fellow graduands to stay curious, open-minded, and committed to learning and growing.
