About the Millennium Fellow
My name is Mugumya Hillary and I am a second year student at the Faculty of science offering a bachelor of science in Biotechnology, Makerere University Uganda. Since I was child, I have a dream to become a biologist. I love chemistry and biology and physics too. Moreover, I am interested in microbiology and its various applications, I'm able to work alone or as a part of a team.
I'm responsible, flexible and open-minded. I work hard and I like to learn new things.
I believe I can benefit by getting familiar with modern technologies, methods and knowledge of molecular biology since I am among the few pioneers of a degree in Biotechnology, this would help me become a better scientist in this field. Hence I will get the better chance to contribute my share to alleviate my country’s problems as a professional through conducting advanced researches on plant and animal to find different ways of alleviating my beloved country’s problems as a professional.
