Francis Mugwanya Wamala

Industrial Engineering, Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences

My name is Wamala Francis Mugwanya from Mpala-Entebbe in Uganda. I am described by a loyal and noble character thus this makes me easily opportunistic in life deeds. I love the fact that I have opened up a new channel in my life due to the bilateral ties with the Malengo team that have made my lives positively unfathomable. I venture so much in Science to cure peoples problems but never at all underestimate the fact that GOD is above all and thus comes First in my Life. I personally never settle for less and always strive for an acme each day anew.

In my life, I have learned that there is nothing important as “Doing good to people”, because all the other things we strive for are vanities but putting a smile on someone’s face is all you need to make the world a better place just like the Malengo team is vividly doing it. I can’t leave out the fact that I like sport, board games and recreational leisure.
