‘What does Mukiibi mean????
That is a very good question. I will ask my Paps and let you know next time, haha.
ha-ha, Tell me a little bit about your back ground
Well, Was born in Uganda. Year? Lets leave that alone.
Was raised mostly abroad. Hoping from country to country since my Paps has been Ambassador for as long as I can remember.
Then, in 2009, after finishing my A level exams, I decided to settle down in Kenya. I didn’t like it at first, but I have grown to love it. Currently still in U.S.I.U.
I have quite a few siblings. 3 brothers and 3 sisters.
Here I go! Don’t get lost.
I have 1 Half Italian brother. 2 Half Russian brothers. 1 half Russian Sister. 1 Half Swiss Sister. And lastly, 1 Half Kenyan sister.
Are you lost yet??!
Yes, I know. It sounds like the United Nations. I love the way it is. My family is so diverse, I can barely keep track of all the different languages, haha.
Knowledge is security, that’s my belief, what is your take on education, especially amongst the youth?
Knowledge is security. It is also the purest form of power.
Personally, I think education is very important. However, I question the education system we have in East Africa, especially Uganda.
It is designed to keep the youth in school for so long, bombarding them with information they won’t even use.
I think education is only effective if someone is studying what they want to pursue. Be it photography, medicine, accounting, business, art, etc.
And the sooner they start on that, the better.
You were Mr. Usiu, and with that comes a lot of responsibilities, how did you manage to balance all that, with school work?
I am sorry. I had to laugh because a lot of people think being Mr.USIU comes with responsibilities.
Sadly, it doesn’t. I was shocked as well. When I won, I was simply forgotten by the institution. There is nothing they give us or call us for. And I blame mainly the student council for this.
Look at the Mr.USIU before me, and the one after me. Do you even know them? My point exactly.
Everything I have done, everything I have become, had nothing to do with being Mr.USIU. I made it happen myself. No one helped me.
However, I am not saying the contest is worthless. Not at all. It gives a platform to those who win to do something with their victory and new-found fame. But if they are lacking in creativity and drive, well, that is where it begins and ends for them.
