Our Educational Foundation keynote speaker was Patience Tusingwire, a post-graduate student from Uganda who is studying International Transaction and Comparative Law at the University of San Francisco. Patience recounted her difficulties growing up the oldest of three orphaned children and told how, against all odds, she acquired a college education through persistence and hard work.

She spent several years working to improve the legal rights of orphans and women in Uganda, and was awarded an AAUW Educational Foundation fellowship which enabled her to further her studies in San Francisco. Julianne Cartwright Traylor, Associate Director of International Programs at the USF School of Law, accompanied Patience for the presentation.
