About Me: 

A strong anti-human trafficking advocate and the training manager at the directorate of citizenship and immigration control in Uganda. A survivor of Uganda’s civil war and atrocities of the Lord’s resistance army (LRA), I use these experiences to make a difference. With a commitment of action with US President Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI U), I rehabilitate victims of human trafficking, raise awareness and train law enforcement. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrOCRlfT664&feature=relmfu
