Edwin Kamalha is the EMA Country Representative for Uganda. I am a final year PhD candidate of the SMDTex programme, which I joined in 2014. I am also a lecturer at Busitema University, In Uganda. My Erasmus experience has taken me to study in France, Italy and now China; specializing in functional textiles and polymers. I am enthusiastic about volunteering, teaching and research. Being part of EMA and Erasmus mobility programme has been exciting and so rewarding. I have learnt and shared experiences that no other programme would offer. I look forward to strengthening and harnessing more from the many networks I have created. It’s been a journey worthwhile, meriting me to visit a couple of European countries on both social, work and academic fronts.
