Becoming Linda Stella

It is a time of firsts!!

Akello Linda Stella was born on a beautiful Sunday night on 4th February in the mid 90s. She is the first child in a family of three children, born and raised in Entebbe by wonderful parents. For her nursery and lower primary, she attended Entebbe Christian School for which she credits her Christian foundation. Her parents in a bid to toughen her took her to St. Agnes Girl’s Catholic Primary Boarding School Naggalama where she completed her primary education. At Trinity College Nabbingo she started and completed her secondary school journey. With a keen interest in entrepreneurship and business management she joined Makerere University Business School where she graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration.

Linda is an introvert a trait got from her father and is also soft spoken. She is opinionated and loves to fight strongly in ideas she believes in. She is attracted by the idea of egalitarianism because she believes that nothing would help the world so much as using love and compassion to soften the heart of tyrants. Simplicity is her language. She loves to have warm and honest conversations, use sensitive language and speak in human terms rather than logic and facts.

Her father once asked her if she’d considered doing comedy because half the time she’s either laughing or smiling. The people she met over the years wondered if she ever got angry. Linda on the other hand loves to say to herself, exist to be happy, not to impress and simply love God and love people.

She believes one of her greatest achievement was turning down an amazing student leadership role for which she was unopposed. Unfortunately she gave up this opportunity because it required her to change who she was and her beliefs. She loved a quote Susan Cain wrote in her book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.

The trick for introverts is to honor their styles instead of allowing themselves to be swept up by prevailing norms

– Susan Cain

Her story continues to unfold and she is equally excited to see where it leads. She encourages people to learn and understand their personality traits. When you know thyself and embrace who you are with all your quirks you can figure out how to best work with your personality. With that school of thought she continues to explore life and what it has to offer.

Not Part of the Bio: Beautiful people of the world, i hope you are well and happy. Writing this bio has been hard, going to write one every month until i get it right. It’s taken me approximately 3 hours to finish and i’m still not sure. *the impostor is trying me* Anyways hope you enjoyed it. Till tomorrow, cheers!!

How i’m seeing this just today is beyond me.

I love comedy. I crack some funny jokes *as told by my sister and father* it’s probably the child in me.

The other Akellos i know are a bit reserved. I need to meet the ones you know.

Aww you did great Linda. I think it’s a beautiful piece. Don’t let the imposter tell you otherwise. I love the life mantra about love and not pleasing people. Also the egalitarianism.
Amazing. Great knowing you. Stay happy and jolly and let God take care of the rest.
