Only To Inspire The Ones Who are Hesitating to apply for the UWC Scholarships in Uganda

Professor Wandira was the chairman of the selection committee for the interviews and awarding the scholarships.  He did not even know that I was best friends with his daughter Agnes at Namagunga.

When all the interviews were finished and the winners were announced, he found me outside crying.  He said something I will never forget.  "Martha, you got it because we all knew you would never forget home and your peoplle.  Enjoy Canada and make us proud".  Three weeks later, I flew out of Uganda.  He was right and so was the entire selection committee.  We now have our own selection committee made up of us who graduated from UWC schools.  Below is a song that Tony sent me one time to tell me something.
-----------------------

I'm writing this letter
to my daughter
I wanted to tell her (I'm coming, coming home)

I'm writing this letter
to my daughter
I wanted to tell her (I'm coming, coming home)
but now I'm on a mission
to represent my nation
but now I'm on a mission
to get that victory
so switch on the TV
and hope that you see me
getting that victory
that will make you proud of me
I went out on the station
to represent my nation
I went out on the station
to get that victory
so switch on the TV
and hope that you see me
getting that victory
that will make you proud of me

I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)
I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)

Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani

I have seen many things,
been many places
been round the world I have seen many faces
I've fought many fights
through the days, through the nights
through the journey
I realise
there's nothing better than la familia
there's nothing sweeter or more superior
than to know where you are from
and represent your home
so when you hear this song
I'm coming home

I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)
I'm coming home
home where I belong (whoo o o)

Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
Narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani

check me out
up in the horizon
coming home, I am coming home
check me out
up in the horizon
coming home, I am coming home

narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani...

narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani
narudi nyumbani, nyumbani
nyumbani, nyumbani...

(oh o o o ohh, mmh mmh hh)
