Some people sit at desks and stare at screens the entire summer. I on the other hand, spent the majority of my summer on the back of a motorcycle working for an awesome for-profit social enterprise called Tugende, based in Kampala, Uganda […]
I didn’t make $20k this summer or get a lucrative offer from a Fortune 500 company; to me though, what I did was much more valuable. I learned that I can thrive in a chaotic environment; that money isn’t nearly as important as we make it out to be; and that there are some really cool jobs out there where you can not only make a living, but also truly have a profound positive social impact. My summer at Tugnede has forever changed the course of my life.

I liked Tugende’s means to kickstarting financial independence; it’s a simple mechanism to tackle poverty and empower people. I’d like to build a career aimed at developing a more inclusive global marketplace and I sensed this position would open the door to new possibilities.

I love Kampala’s spark! The entire city crackles with energy. It’s loud, chaotic, fast, and unpredictable, and that makes me feel incredibly alive.
