STELLA Nakato, a former student of Naalya Senior Secondary School scored 25 points in last yearâ€™s Aâ€™level examinations.
A first born in the family of three, Nakato said: â€œMy mother used to hustle getting loans to pay my school fees so I had to reward her by excelling.â€
The 18-year-old was doing history, economics, geography and divinity.
She said scoring aggregate 30 in her Oâ€™level exams pushed her to read hard for Aâ€˜level.
Nakato wishes to join Makerere University and pursue a degree in law.
