Having grown up as an expat, frequently relocating around the world, Priyanka’s upbringing revolved around cultural immersion and the challenging experiences related to constant displacement.. Along with her personal experience, Priyanka draws deep inspiration from her father, who grew up in Uganda and became a refugee early in his life during the 1971 coup. Hearing his stories and seeing her father succeed motivated her to join UpGlo’s LC and help future refugees and immigrants thrive.
