In her deliberation, Kalanguka who is a computer scientist and a model as well, told students always to be practical, passionate and dedicated in whatever they do.

“When you are at school, learn how to balance your time and concentrating on one thing at a time, and when start working, have a target, you either wok for fun and work for money,” Kalanguka told the students.
