Drugmo is part of the Vocational School Scholarship Program and started her internship in mid July 2018. She is doing very well. “I am very happy for getting the chance to study design and survey. I am enjoying my internship especially because I can work at my county town and meet my mother almost every week. It has been a nervous experience coming to this company for the first time. Everything around me is very unfamiliar. But all my concerns and worries are not needed as the leaders of the company and the team I am with is very supportive and kind to me. They are willing to help me whenever I feel nervous about using the equipment. I am encouraged every morning and I truly appreciate all these amazing people. I am getting used to the work and daily routines here and I find myself improving a lot. This internship is giving me a great opportunity to put the knowledge that I have learnt at school into practice and I fully agree that practice is crucially needed no matter how well you do on things at school. I am confident for a great future for both myself and my family through schooling now. Thank you so much for giving me such a great chance to fulfill my own dreams and help my family. I will always be grateful for what you have done for me.”
Drugmo is filled with confidence and bright smiles as she remembers where she has come from and what now lies ahead of her. Thank you to SWIS and Judith for sponsoring Drugmo and giving her this wonderful opportunity in the vocation of Design and Surveying.
