I have played football at home, at school – in my early years until i have had the opportunitY to play for teams in the United Kingdom.

I attended Kidde Nursery school Kasangati, Gayaza Junior school for Primary education, Gayaza High School – Ordinary Level and St Marys Kitende for Advanced Level Certificate in Uganda. At early age, I wanted to become a pharmacist but my passion for football outcompeted the dream. I was admitted pursuing a bachelor’s in human resource management at Makerere University business school after my secondary school but this was altered by my passion for sports and I decided to pursue a degree in Sports Science in the United Kingdom.

MY FOOTBALL JOURNEY.

I started playing competitive football during school -time at Gayaza high school later joined St Marys Kitende where I captained the girls team. During my school time, I helped St. Marys Kitende win trophies including the Wakiso district championships.

I was spotted to play for the Crested cranes the Uganda Women’s National Football Team in 2012 that was due to play in Egypt when I was 17. I however made my senior debut during the CECAFA Women’s Championships Tournament that was played in Jinja in 2016, I currently have 5 caps for Uganda.

 

I started play football in the UK with London Phoenix ladies in division One for three Seasons and later signed for Queens Park Rangers for three seasons, then signed for Crystal Palace Ladies and currently playing for Queens Park Rangers Women after re-joining and grateful for the opportunities
