Growing up in Kiziba Refugee Camp, Daniella has seen the impact created by a lack of health education: disease, drug abuse, and unplanned teen pregnancies. After watching her mother work as a nurse at the camp dispensary, Daniella aspires to become a nurse, as well, and teach people in her community about nutrition, disease prevention and pregnancy planning. The oldest of her siblings and the first in her family to go to university, Daniella’s vision is to help improve the health of her community, and provide for her family through her job!
