"As an international student, coming to the US for college was an exciting opportunity improve my abilities, explore my interests, and discover new skills. Having participated in two education systems — Ugandan and American — I am able to compare and appreciate the unique qualities Pepperdine has to offer. In just my first year attending Pepperdine my worldview has really grown. I have always believed that political, social, and economic justice in the world is everyones responsibility, and that fulfilling this requires great leadership skills and a spirit of service. Fortunately, Pepperdine is committed to strengthening its students to live lives of purpose, service, and leadership. Through Pepperdine's mission I have been able to live with purpose, explore service opportunities, and reach my goals, which has really helped my world view not only grow, but also broaden."
