Catherine Namata

"I want to treat sick people."

Catherine has always been interested in doctors, hospitals and medicine and would like to become a nurse when she grows up.  She doesn’t like being sick and doesn’t want other people to be sick, either.

Catherine is fortunate to live with both her parents.  Her mother stays at home doing domestic duties and caring for Catherine, her sister, and her two younger brothers.  Her father is a casual laborer and attempts to find enough work to support his family.  There are many weeks where he doesn’t work at all.  During these times, they rely on the support of extended family members and friends.  Catherine likes to write and her favorite color is yellow.
