Nsimenta Longs For Engineering

MAXIMA Nsimenta, 17 years old. Though the name may not ring a bell in your ears, the fact is she emerged one of Namagunga’s best girls in the 2003 UCE exams and wants to be a chemical engineer though she says has some characteristics teaching.
She reveals that she has been teaching Physics and Chemistry in S1 and S2 at Naminya Girls High school in her long vacation where her mother is headteacher.
“I received the information that I was among the best students in the country while on my way to Hoima for my uncle’s burial. So am sorry for the disappointment to all the people who called in need of an interview because there was no way I could provide it,” joyous Nsimenta apologetically says.
Nsimenta got aggregate 8 in eight subjects in the recently released and says her success did not just emerge all of a sudden but did a lot towards it saying she got involved in group discussions, respected both the teachers and the parent and also said enough relaxation is needed if at all one wants to succeed.
Nsimenta adds since in her Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) she got aggregate 4 at Namagunga Primary School and still appeared in papers, it is the reason as to why she dedicated a lot of time in books so as to maintain it.
“Hard working while in school, group formation and respecting teachers has contributed a lot towards my success ever since started schooling,” she humbly says.
Nsimenta is a daughter of Mr. And Mrs Nyamarere residents of Jinja and they are braced with five children of which the elder sister is at Mbarara University on government sponsorship.
Nyamarere says their daughter has been hard working since her primary and since she gives little time for relaxation that is why the children are performing well hence calling upon parents to always respond to the teachers’ calls in schools if at all they are called upon to discuss educational issues as a way forward for education success.
“I don’t give my children a lot of time for watching T.V’S, they have to do the domestic chores and concentrate in books may be if they are tired and feel like relaxing they can watch it. This has brought me a lot of success stories in academics,” Nyamarere said.

By Steven Candia

FOR Paula Akimanzi of St.Mary’s Namagunga, who came third in Mukono district and etched her name on the list of the school’s cream, her brilliant performance was a perfect answer to her prayers.
“For long I prayed for good results and I did expect good results but not as good as this,” she said at the their Bandali Close residence in Bugolobi. She exclaimed: “God is great!” as she flung her self at her mother, Bernadine Akimanzi.
When The New Vision broke the news to her on phone on Tuesday evening, she screamed in disapproval, thinking the reporter was pulling her leg.
And 20 minutes later at 7:41pm when The New Vision team pulled up at their residence, the 17-year-old girl, spotting braided hair, a red sleeveless top, black jeans and moccasins was still grappling with the good tidings. Born in 1987, the last born and only girl in the family of five, Akimanzi improved her mock results by one and scored aggregate 8. “You can have every thing; work hard read all the books, have nice teachers but in the end it is only God who has the final say,” she said.
