A Ugandan man identified as Roland Olum has shared his story of triumph over challenges as he is set to bag two degrees.
He shared before and after photos revealing the menial job he did as a labourer in 2018 which he used to sponsor himself through the university.
Olum announced that he will be graduating on May 23, 2022 with Bachelor of Medicine as well as Bachelor of Surgery degrees from Makerere University School of Medicine.
