Staff attorney at the International Law Institute-African Centre for Legal Excellence
Year Graduated: 2012
Yen blogged about her experiences on the Student Life blog before graduating.
"It is incredible the opportunities I've had here in Uganda. In a few short months, I have been able to do things that I never dreamed possible. I have a billboard that I designed up in Kampala, I've met members of Parliament, had lunch with one of the highest ranked generals who helped overthrow Idi Amin, and learned so much about economic development from the perspectives of the beneficiary countries. I know that there is so much more to look forward to in the future!"
