Kirunda Swayb

About Me: 

I always shudder at the thought of life. Many a person usually asks themsleves about life.This question depends on who you ask and from where you ask it! In my quest for above, i realised that life is what you are at that particular moment when you are asked. I am therefore thankful to my parents: Alhajji Asuman Kirunda and Hajjat Salma Kirunda,who introduced me to Literature especially poetry at an early stage. Daddy always said that Poetry is the most memorable and most feelingly expressed of all imaginative verbal compositions.I kept that definition in my psyche. Thank Allah, i realised what my daddy always said to me. Daddy, i am now good at poetry. Swaib went to Kibuli Demonstration School for his primary level, then to Kibuli Secondary School, Gombe Secodanry School, Makerere University Kampala, and the Islamic University In Uganda where he finally trained as a teacher.

i have taught English Language and Literature in English in Uganda since my graduation. It was after realising that i was bout a spectaculuos teacher that i proceeded to Rwanda to do the same. I am apparently working with a great organ of Rwanda Education Board as an English Language specialist.

I am inspired by the following people: Ms Victoria Kisarale Serunkuma and Ms Rose Izizinga. These are prominent ladies who have made a legency in the education sector of Uganda. I have a special attachment to Vikki, she my good teacher of Literature. The Literature i have belongs to Vikki-Thank you teacher
