She got a first grade in primary seven at Kyangamwoyo primary school in Kimengo Sub County Masindi district with eight aggregates. When she joined Ikoba Girls secondary school, she was given a bursary because of her good performance.
According to Atulinda, she wants to do PCB/Sub math in â€˜Aâ€™ level such that she can become a medical Doctor. She says she has been supported by Ikoba Girls secondary school right from senior one to senior four since her parents are finically constrained.
She adds that she wants to continue with her studies but she cannot continue since her father is bed ridden. She also notes that her father cannot support himself because is suffering from hepatitis B and back ache.
Atulinda is calling upon the public and the well-wishers` to come out and help her in her studies such that she can become a responsible citizen.
Yesterday, the Ikoba girls secondary schoolâ€™s chaplain Reverend, Fred Wamani, brought Atulinda to the district chairmanâ€™s office such that they can forge a way forward of helping her.
Speaking to journalist, Â Wamani explained that they have been supporting Â her since she joined â€˜Oâ€™ level adding that they brought her to the office of the district chairman Â such that it can provide a helping hand.

He also added that as district authorities they are going to devise means and and forge a way on how they will be helping students with such cases.
