Gloria is a features writer with The New Vision, Uganda's largest circulation English daily newspaper.

While she writes across a range of issues, she is particularly interested in education, health and womenís empowerment.

From a humble background and driven by passion, she is a newsroom-taught journalist who believes the best way to tell a good story is to live it.

She started as a freelance correspondent with The New Vision in early 2012 and joined the full-time staff a little over a year later.

For her 2015 David Astor Award programme, she spent three months working at The Independent in London and the Mail & Guardian in Johannesburg.

She holds a bachelorís degree in Human Resource Management from Makerere University Business School.

Journalism, she believes, is a calling and not just an occupation.  She daily looks forward to growing into a deeply grounded, seasoned journalist who will give African stories a new, objective and unvarnished perspective.

When not in the newsroom or chasing the next story in the field, she enjoys going out with her five-year-old son and reading an interesting book.
