UNAA Vice President
My name is Joan Bavuga, a licensed social worker born and raised in Kisoro district by the Late Mr. John Bavuga and Ms. Caroline Ikuze Bavuga. I am a proud mother of two beautiful boys Norman and Michael Bavuga whom i have lived with in Taylor, Michigan since 2009.
During my stay in Michigan, I served the Ugandan community in Michigan (UCOM) as vice president from 2018-2020 having been selected by the community in my absence and without a single campaign.
The community members saw that I could lead and move forward the diverse community we are while promoting togetherness.
I have also been a member of the Uganda North America Association since 2014.
As a UNAA member, I have closely followed what has been happening in the organization because of the love and pride for being a Ugandan. Being on the sidelines, I have seen a good size I can capitalize on to continue building the organization. At the same time, I saw some loopholes that need improvement and would use my line of experts and training.
I am an active listener, and I have patience. Communication is the key in everything I do. I talk less and listen more.
