  1. I am a woman aged 45 and working as a School Manager (Headmistress) at Marymount Secondary School. I am a holder of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture Education obtained at Bunda College (LUANAR). I did my course work Masters degree study at LUANAR in 2015 and passed with GPA of 3.32 but failed to complete because of lack of scholarship.
    I am interested to take part in the activity and to visit Paris because I want to learn more about leadership because the school I am heading is a big one with 660 students and 73 members of staff.
    I will be grateful if you will consider me to be one of the participants.
    This is my third year in leadership at this big institution.
    I hope that when when I will be considered I will be motivated and improve my leadership skills in order to improve the performance of my school.
