The new and first female guild president of Victoria University Kampala, Maria Peggy Nabunya, has laid out his priorities just a few days after being sworn in at a sumptuous ceremony last Saturday at Speke Resort Munyonyo.

The second year student of bachelor’s of science in public health, who also has been serving as the vice president of the Peter Isiko led guild cabinet, says she choose to go for the big job because she had many ideas for the university.

“I intend to work with the entire university to see that students continue to reap the fruits of the tuition they pay in terms of career growth, engaging students in activities that encourage us to be job creators as opposed to being job seekers. I also intend to have VU engage in more inter-university activities.” She said in a brief statatement highlighting what she intends to do for the university.

“Being guild president to me means challenging myself to know my capabilities. It means empowerment and inspiration to younger women like myself to aim for the highest and believe that in order to see a difference, you have to be that difference first.” She added.

Meanwhile, Victoria University also launched its alumni association last Saturday, at the same function. Dr. Martin Aliker, the University’s chancellor in a brief speech said that ‘with the launch of the alumni association, you will be able to interact and be able to keep in touch with the university. The more you keep in touch with the University the more you will make the university famous because of what you are doing outside the university.’
