Recently I received Youth Business International (YBI) annual report featuring one of my images. I had a pleasure to work with YBI's beneficiaries in Uganda during a reporting trip for Guardian's International Development Journalism competition. With reporter Sarah Shearman, we visited few hard working young entrepreneurs and among them Leticia Nabirye (featured in the annual report) definitely stood out. Leticia started with few goats which by the time we visited grew into a herd of few hundred. Additionally, she invested her profits in a lemon orchard and a restaurant. Hearing her story was very inspiring and meeting great people on assignment is one of the best things of being a photographer!
