Congratulations to Mike, who graduated from Makerere University with an Education degree earlier this year.  He’s currently inspiring other students to learn and study hard as a teacher at Emmanuel College near Kampala.

In addition to teaching, he’s a musician and loves to sing. He’s saved enough money to record his first two songs in a local studio and shared them with us. He’s currently working on a third.

“We have loved watching Mike grow and evolve as a student the past five years. He always told us he wanted to be a teacher, but then he started giving voice to his music dreams, too. Whether it’s teaching or music … (or teaching music!), he will always be a special part of our family,” said Lisa Parker Weisman.

 Our thanks to the Weisman family for their support in helping Mike put his dreams in action.
