Catherine Namwezi (Class of 2013)
“I have many favorite memories from ISU. I was blessed with a great group of friends, peers and teachers all of whom gave me a lot of unforgettable memories. Most of those memories however were with my two ISU host families. The Campbell’s, who have gone on to become my family even here in the US.
Ms.Bukenya a teacher at ISU was a wonderful mentor to me through my time at ISU. She was not only my Math teacher but also a friend that I could go to for anything and everything. Ms.Serniak - a Hope College alum - pointed out Hope to me, the school I have come to call home and love so dearly. Ms. Christina McConnell, the first person I met right after I got to ISU. She has been a constant in my life, she writes to me all the time and I always look forward to seeing her each time I am in Uganda.” Catherine Namwezi.
Brian Kiiza (Class of 2015)
“The ISU Scholarship has had a great impact on my life. It has offered me an opportunity to be challenged, learn and grow as a leader. I learnt to get involved in pressing issues in my community, work and interact with people from different backgrounds. It equipped me with skills of multitasking, time management and most importantly being able to reflect on what I have done such that I realize my growth and things that I still need to improve on. I have found these skills so relevant in my life at ‘University of British Columbia’ (UBC).” - Brian Kiiza
Judith Otiti (Class of 2016)
“I first joined ISU in 2013, and I was shocked by the diversity in the school. I had a challenge between the difference of the Ugandan system and the IB Diploma System. I had to swiftly adapt to this change and grasp skills such as analytical and research skills, which helped me to write academic papers enabling me to successfully complete my Personal Project in Grade 10 with the highest grade. I had to learn how to paint from the initial stages of even holding a painting brush which enabled me to do a mural style painting for the Malaika Babies Home for abandoned babies to improve the visual image and environment of their infant home . I am also elated to have received a MasterCard scholarship to University of British Columbia.” Judith Otiti.

“The scholarship has helped get a good education and also be able to pursue my future goals. Having no worries about tuition makes me relax and think of my studies. I also really enjoy the exposure that I get from being around different cultures and people.” – Daisy Asiimwe
